A Sacramento man has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child porn.
Jarek Quinten Weber, 20, was being held in Sacramento County Jail on Friday. His bail was set at $50,000.
Detectives said they arrested Weber on May 23 for allegedly possessing thousands of images of child pornography. Many of the children depicted in the photographs are under the age of 12.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department’s Hi-Tech Crimes unit found that the images were of children in the Sacramento area. In some cases, detectives allege, Weber would contact the child and demand more images or he would post the image he had online.
