More searches conducted in growing kiddie porn case

Judicial agents conducted more searches Thursday seeking more evidence in a growing kiddie porn case. This time the searches were in Santa Bárbara de Heredia and in Belén de Heredia.

This is the case in which information came from London, England, and Bellorussia that credit cards from Costa Rica were used to access an Internet child pornography site. The Judicial Investigating Organization said that credit cards were confiscated as evidence during searches Thursday.

Judicial agents here detained a man in Ciudad Quesada San Carlos Tuesday morning because his credit card number showed up in the European investigations. Agents also conducted searches in Liberia, Puntarenas, San Carlos, Cartago and Pavas that day.

The Judicial Investigating Organization said that the European ring had a system of images connected to a Web page where those interested in viewing child porn could pay money and access the site.
