LOS ANGELES -- Authorities would like the public's help in identifying possible victims of a man federally indicted this
month on possession of child pornography.
The FBI and Riverside County Sheriff's Department investigators believe Jorge Aglony may have had physical contact with
victims based on evidence found in his possession, announced Salvador Hernandez, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI in
Aglony was arrested in Palm Desert on September 12th for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Further
investigation led to search warrants for the hotel room, where Aglony had been staying, as well as his vehicle. Aglony was
indicted by a federal grand jury on 11/12/08, charged with receipt and possession of child pornography, as well as possession
with intent to distribute methamphetamine and phencyclidine (PCP).
A search of Aglony's Palm Desert hotel room and his car yielded drug paraphernalia, as well as pornographic images of minors.
During a search of Aglony's car, detectives found dozens of CDs, DVDs, VHS video cassettes, various other digital storage
devices, video cameras, digital cameras, and handheld radios. Detectives also found a very small digital video camera with
pornographic images of unsuspecting females in public places.
The search uncovered notes with sexual references and observations about the physical appearance, ethnicity and apparel
of several individuals, described in some cases as "15 year old" or as "girls." Some of the notes found included a listing
of secondary schools in the Mountain View, San Jose, and Santa Clara areas of California.
Additionally, detectives found in Aglony's hotel room a police badge with the letters "NTF,"
an apparent reference
to "Narcotics Task Force." The badge suggests that Aglony may have impersonated a law enforcement officer.
Aglony is currently being held in federal custody and is scheduled to be arraigned today in U.S. District Court in Riverside.
If convicted as charged, Aglony faces a statutory maximum penalty of 110 years in federal prison.
Anyone who believes their child has had contact with Aglony, or who otherwise has information involving Aglony's possible
criminal activity involving minors, is urged to contact the FBI, 24 hours a day, at 1 310 477-6565.
