CYBER CRIMES UNIT ARRESTS BENTON COUNTY MAN
LITTLE ROCK – Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced today that agents from the Attorney General’s Office have arrested a Benton County man for possession of child pornography.
Jammie Albert Tucker, 46, of Cave Springs was arrested Friday on 30 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, a Class C felony. Tucker was released from the Benton County Detention Center on $25,000 bond.
Agents with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crimes Unit arrested Tucker after they executed a search warrant at his residence on Chestnut Street in Cave Springs. Investigators seized a laptop computer and other electronic evidence. The evidence will be analyzed at the Cyber Crimes Unit Forensic Lab in Little Rock.
Special Agent Chris Cone began investigating Tucker earlier this month after suspecting that child pornography was being possessed at his residence.
The Benton County Sheriff’s Office and Cave Springs Police Department assisted in the investigation and arrest.
The Attorney General’s Office will turn over its completed case file to Benton County Prosecuting Attorney Van Stone.
Charges are merely accusations and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
