On April 7, 2015, Cameron Boyd, of Forest, VA, was arrested on charges related to the possession of child pornography.
In 2013 Cameron Boyd became a person of interest to the SOVA-ICAC when a Detective from Lynchburg Police Department downloaded child pornography from a suspect believed to be within the city of Lynchburg. Further investigation led to the discovery that the suspect lived in Bedford County, at which point the case was referred to the Bedford Sheriff’s Office.
In 2014, investigators from the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office’s assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Unit, executed a search warrant at the residence of Boyd, 27, of Forest, Virginia, seeking evidence related to the internet activity involving the possession of child pornography. Numerous pieces of evidence were collected, including laptop computers, and digital storage media, which were submitted for forensic analysis. Upon completion of the analysis, the case was presented to the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office for review, and Boyd was subsequently indicted by a grand jury on April 3, 2015.
Lynchburg Police Department is an affiliate agency with the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which has been administered by the Bedford Sheriff’s Office since the task force program was created in 1998, through a federal grant.
