Members of the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit and school resource officers worked together to apprehend suspects allegedly engaged in possession of child pornography.


"The school resource officers provided the personnel to execute the search warrants produced by the many hours of difficult investigative work the Cyber Crimes Unit had already invested," OCSO said in a press release.


In early May, five separate search warrants were executed within the county at various residences. The victims ages range from 2 to 7 years old, according to the release.


Over 6,000 images or videos were recovered in the search.
