A tip that police received about the alleged upload of child pornography to a Google account led to the arrest of a 21-year-old Reading man, Berks County District Attorney John T. Adams announced Tuesday.
On Thursday, June 24, 2021, the Berks County Detective’s Office received a complaint from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (N.C.M.E.C.), involving file sharing of child pornography utilizing the internet/web application “Google.”
The Berks County Detectives learned that an individual uploaded numerous digital videos of suspected child pornography to a “Google” account in April and May of 2021.
Detectives identified the aforementioned “Google” account as being in the name of “Kilvio Guzman Figueroa.” Additionally, they determined that the I.P. addresses utilized to upload these digital files of child pornography to the target “Google” account were from a Comcast Cable Communications account in the name of “Kilvio Guzman”.
On Thursday, September 16, 2021, the Berks County Detective’s Office executed a search warrant at a residence in the 800 block of North 11th Street.
Several electronic devices were seized during the search warrant and Detectives say Guzman did knowingly admit that he received images of child pornography that were inadvertently uploaded to his “Google” account.
Later, a forensic analysis was conducted on the electronic devices seized from the residence. As a result, investigators say numerous digital files (images and videos) of child pornography were recovered from two of his devices.
On Tuesday, May 24, 2022, Guzman was taken into custody by members of the Berks County Detectives. Charges include: Sexual Abuse of Children related to the Dissemination and Possession of Child Pornography and Criminal Use of a Communications Facility.
A criminal complaint is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
