Manalapan Man Among 27 Charged In State Police Child Porn Probe

Arrests made in 26 towns across the state.

Men from eight North Jersey towns were among 27 people charged in a state police child porn investigation dubbed "Operation Watchdog," authorities said Tuesday. Among those arrested was Jared Pacifici, a 27-year-old resident of Manalapan Township. 

The 26 men and one woman used file sharing programs on the internet to download or distribute child porn, the state police said. Among the images and videos were those with a "digital fingerprint" that were tracked as they moved across file sharing networks, authorities said.

“Through aggressive, technology-driven investigations such as Operation Watchdog, we must banish the misguided notion that online viewing and sharing of child pornography is a victimless crime,” Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa said. “The vulnerable children who are tortured and degraded to create these vile materials are re-victimized every time another person views the images."

One of the arrested men, Cesar Salgado-Maya, 23, of Audubon, lived in a residence connected to a day care, police said. Another, Bernard Cahill, 53, of Folsom, took pictures of himself sexually assaulting a juvenile, images that were discovered on his computer, police said.

Cahill was charged with sexual assault and manufacturing child pornography.

“Those who thought they could hide their child porn crimes in the secrecy of their homes have been exposed by the relentless work of law enforcement working together," said Colonel Rick Fuentes, Superintendent of the state police.

More than 100 law enforcement personnel from 21 agencies took part in the three-month investigation, executing search warrants in 26 towns last week.

During one of the raids, police found a 66-year-old Pennsauken man, William Brooks, downloading child porn as authorities stormed in, police said.

Three people, whose names were not released, are still being sought, police said.

“Let the word go out that those who share child pornography over the Internet are also sharing the evidence of their crimes with computer experts from law enforcement, who are patrolling the Internet to stop this tragic victimization of children,” said Stephen J. Taylor, director of the state Division of Criminal Justice.

The photos and images have been turned over to the FBI, police said.

Innocent until proven guilty.

If this is proved to be true, it is sad for all the victims and the perpetrators deserve whatever punishment that will occur.

Disgusting perverted P.O.S.! I hope they get the crap beat out of them in jail!

Hey Frank G....seriously? Innocent until proven guilty? How do you explain the guy that was downloading the stuff as the cops kicked in the door or the guy that had pictures of himself doing these horrible things? Maybe the cops should look into you, since you're being so defensive for these worthless disturbed p.o.s! They'll get their special alone time once they join the general prison population.

These predators deserve the most severe punishment for preying on our kids..They are the sickest individuals. I'm glad their names are listed here so we know who are threats to our children..Sandusky's name could be added to the list -he sent love letters to his victims. How sick is that?
