Gwinnett County police arrest new officer for furnishing obscene material to minors www.privateofficer.com
Gwinnett County GA May 27 2012 Police arrested one of their own Friday.
In a release, GCPD announced the arrest of David D. Lowe. The 26 year old Lowe graduated from the police academy earlier this month.
Lowe is charged with electronically furnishing obscene material to minors. Investigators are looking into additional charges.
GCPD’s Special Victims Unit received a tip from the Georgia Bureau of Investigations about explicit video on the website MyYearbook.com, a site designed for use by minors. The site allows users to create a profile and only interact with people in their age range. For example, if a 14 year old creates a profile, they will only be able to interact with users between the age of 13 and 16.
The tip from GBI showed that an unknown person had created an account on the website and was sharing adult videos with minors.
GCPD’s SVU was lead to Lowe’s home based on this information. Police obtained a search warrant for their fellow officer and conducted a search on his home and computers Friday.
Lowe was arrested and will be taken to the Gwinnett County Detention Center.
After his arrest, GCPD says Lowe was presented with a “notification of intent to terminate.” Lowe opted to resign instead.
