While PBC court is still processing the arrest paperwork, here is what we know:
Forrest Santos, 46, of Poinsettia Ave in West Palm Beach, was arrested and charged with over 70 felony charges related to child pornography by the West Palm Beach Police Department. The charges specifically relate to the transfer and the possession of electronic child pornography.
It is unclear at this time if social media like Snapchat was used as it often is in these types of cases. It is also unknown at this time if this arrested stemmed from a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).
