Police: East Memphis Man Arrested for Streaming Child Porn

(Memphis) An East Memphis man is behind bars for sharing child porn online.

Investigators said they found several videos and dozens of pictures of children involved in sex acts on Luis Hernandez’s computer.

Police raided Hernandez’s house Friday.

“When we drove up there were cops everywhere. There were undercover cars and police just all over,” said Joseph Omen who lives across the street.

Investigators are still trying to find out where Hernandez got the child porn.

“Very concerned about that with my three girls right across the street. They play out here,” said Omen.

No one answered the door when we stopped by Hernandez’s home.

Edgar Barajas also lives across the street and said his cousin lives with Hernandez.

Barajas said he does not know if his family ever saw anything suspicious.

“[My cousin] has [two] children of their own, so I don’t know,” Barajas said.

Investigators said Hernandez admitted to his crimes.

He is charged with two felonies: sexual exploitation of a minor and aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

“Nothing like this has happened before. This isn’t the behavior we are used to,” said Omen.

Hernandez is being held on a $150,000 bond and is expected to appear in court on Monday.
