Two Cantonment Residents Arrested On Multiple Child Pornography Charges

July 29, 2020

Two Cantonment residents were arrested on multiple child pornography Tuesday after the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office received a tip about 5,208 uploaded child porn images.

Ian Christopher Lopez, 34, was charged with 20 counts of promotion of certain images of child pornography and booked into the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $300,000. Patrick Taylor Wynn, 29, was also charged with 20 counts of promotion of certain images of child pornography, possession of a controlled substance without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. Wynn’s bond was set at $306,000.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office receive a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding 5,208 upload files of apparent child pornography. The user account information, including the username “John Appleseed”, user id, email and IP address were provided.

The IP address was traced to an address in the 4000 block of Pebble Creek Drive, where the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on Tuesday.

A resident of the home described Wynn and Lopez as partners that had recently moved to 3061 Wiggins Lane in Cantonment. Deputies obtained and executed a search warrant at that address Tuesday. Lopez told deputies that he and Wynn “were in an on and off homosexual relationship for approximately 10 years”. He said they were no longer in that relationship but continued to live together with seperate rooms in the house.

Wynn told deputies that he viewed adult pornography, but when questioned further he requested an attorney, according to an arrest report.

Deputies found a thumb drive in a master bathroom connected to Lopez’s room that contained at least 20 images of obvious child pornography, the report states. A SD card containing at least 20 child porn videos, a thumb drive with 20 more child porn videos, and portable hard drive with three child pron videos were located in Wynn’s bedroom, the arrest report states.

The videos pertained to male children between about five and 15-years old engaged in sexual activity, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Also in Wynn’s bedroom, the ECSO reported they found a pipe and crystal methamphetamine.

A preliminary digital forensics examination conducted on Wynn’s iPhone found an account matching the reported storage account containing 5,208 child pornography images, the ECSO said.

    @ Big Al
    Thanks for your input I just figured if they can trace out individuals like these two
    , lowlifes they could find the ones putting it out.I don’t have any young kids but I do find it disgusting that this happens more often than not.Evil people.

    @ fisherman. Local law enforcement deal with local pediphiles who surf the dark web to find this media. I deeper than local file sharing. These kind of things can originate from anywhere in the world and these sick individuals download these files. So local law enforcement deal with what is in our backyard. Other agencies deal with theirs and only then what you think will work. Furthermore just worry about what can harm your own kids locally and stop worrying about what is happening in other parts of the world.

    If law enforcement can trace individuals uploading this stuff why can’t they trace the individuals putting this garbage out.William could you please look into why they can’t find the people who make this available on line.The porn industry is a multi billion dollar a year business.The federal government could shut all this down today but there would be law suits saying first amendment rights are being violated

    Reason number 243 on why all pornograph websites should be removed. It progressively gets worse and worse.

    But of course only conservative videos of Hydroxychloroquine get deleted from the internet.

    Sickos! Disgusting waste of space.

    My concern is who is uploading this and how are they obtaining it to upload. This seems to be the big issue. If this was not available to view then I would think this would help with individuals like these. If people were not able to view it then perhaps people would not be filming it as the demand would be lower. The government needs to be more proactive to protect our children. I know this is only a dream that this horrific act against children would go away but if we are not able to view certain things on our internet and social media shouldn’t this be one of them? I say ban all of it. If you want to see a video make your own with your spouse and view it. Everyone will have to answer to our Heavenly father one day. I would hate to be in the shoes of these sick individuals who are doing this.

    Well well well….. Looks like moving to the “north end” or “that other county” isn’t working any longer. Coming to a neighborhood near you!!! If it’s not already…
