A 39-year-old man was arrested in Los Gatos today on child pornography charges following an investigation by a law enforcement task force, a spokesman for the San Jose Police Department said. The Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, made up of law agencies from 11 Bay Area counties, served the warrant at 10:30 a.m. today at an address in the 300 block of Dardanelli Lane near Knowles Drive, San Jose police officer Albert Morales said.
Agents of the task force located the suspect targeted in the warrant, Arturo Ruiz Perez, detained and then booked him into the Santa Clara County Main Jail on suspicion of felony possession of child pornography, Morales said. According to online jail records, Perez’s bail was set at $25,000 and he is set to appear in Santa Clara county Superior Court in San Jose on Dec. 1.
