 BEAUMONT –  A tip regarding the production and distribution of child pornography set serious and immediate task force action into motion. “The Riverside County Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement/Internet Crimes Against Children (SAFE/ICAC) task force received a tip from FBI agents in Louisiana at about 2 p.m. on Aug. 12th,” said John Hall, Office of the District Attorney – County of Riverside.

The task force conducted an investigation and the suspect was paid a visit. Two hours later, “Devynn Michael Perez, DOB: 2-17-90, was arrested at his at his workplace in Mira Loma on suspicion of sending and/or possessing child pornography, using an underage person for obscene material, and possessing an illegal assault weapon,” said Hall. “He was booked at the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility where he was being held in lieu of $70,000 bail.”

Concurrently,  the task force had obtained and served a search warrant at Perez’s Beaumont home. There, they’d found an unregistered AR-15 weapon and investigation-related evidence.

Consequently, two days later,  the DA’s Office filed 10 felonies in Case BAF2000961. Perez was scheduled for arraignment at the Banning Justice Center.
