Pembroke Pines Man Arrested for Child Pornography

Pembroke Pines Police said that internet cybertips had led them to another child pornography suspect.

Records indicate that Patrick James Gallagher, 22, was detained on Monday and accused with 11 charges of encouraging child sexual acts and using a computer to obtain child pornography.

There is no evidence to suggest that Gallagher ever physically engaged with any underage children, according to investigators with the Broward County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, but he was in possession of child porn.

Detectives tracked the internet protocol address to a Pembroke Pines home after receiving cybertips concerning the posting of images and videos of juveniles engaging in sex activities in May.

Gallagher was apprehended without incident after police performed surveillance at his residence.

He was taken into custody and is being held without bond at the Broward County Jail.
