19-year-old arrested on child porn charges

Cameron Rushing is in custody after authorities say a SWAT team search uncovered child pornography inside the home where he lived.

GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. - A Green Cove Springs man was arrested Friday morning on child porn charges in the 3000 block of Silverado Cir. The Sheriff's Office is charging 19-year-old Cameron Rushing with two counts of transmission of child pornography. 

Members of the Clay County Sheriff's Office spoke with the residents who live inside the home and obtained several laptops and hard drives.

The Sheriff's Office was able to download 70 files of child porn from the defendant in June, according to his arrest affidavit and then match an IP address to him.

The investigation involved the Internet Crimes Against Children unit among a few other divisions. 

According to the Sheriff's Office, investigators routinely search online for people passing along or downloading child pornography.

Trey Selph lives next-door to the suspect. He watched as authorities investigated where Rushing lived and said knowing what allegedly happened there makes him uneasy.

"It shakes me up to the point where I'm going to think twice before I let my kids play in the yard. I have to think twice before I let them do normal activities," Selph said.
