Officers say tips from the national center for missing and exploited children led to them issuing a warrant at the residence of 21-year-old. GPD searched inside his home on SW 62nd Blvd., when they found multiple electronic devices with images of children being sexually abused.

These devices are still undergoing a comprehensive forensic analysis.
