3/12/2019 - Man Arrested on Child Pornography Charges

The Special Victims Unit concluded a child pornography investigation today that began last week after receiving a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Earlier today, our investigators, along with Homeland Security, executed a search warrant at suspect’s address, where they recovered a computer that contained numerous images of child pornography. The suspect is Jeffrey Scott Ford, W/M,  5 Orchard Lane, Inman, SC, 29349.  He is charged with 5 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor – Second Degree, and 1 count of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor – Third Degree.   Ford should appear before a magistrate for bond arraignment later today. Our office would again like to thank Homeland Security for their continued assistance when investigating these type of cases.
