The Barrow County Sheriff's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Unit recently arrested 3 individuals for the possession and distribution of child pornography. These arrests came after the Sheriff's Office received cybertips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Search warrants were then issued and executed on the individuals' homes and electronics.

Jason Eric Bramlett of Auburn was arrested on March 30 and charged with 8 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children. Three of the charges were for images he possessed dating back to 2013. The remaining 5 charges were for distributing illegal images to the internet. Bramlett has since bonded out of the Barrow County Detention Center.

David Ryan Steeley of Winder was arrested on March 30. He was charged with 4 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children. Two were for distributing illegal images to the internet and two for possessing videos of minors engaged in sex acts. Steeley was also charged with 16 counts of Criminal Attempt to Commit Sexual Exploitation of Children for using the internet to exploit children. Steeley was out on bond from Hall County on child molestation charges. A condition of his bond was that he was to not have contact with minor children; however, deputies found one child at the residence upon execution of the search warrant. Steeley remains in jail at the Barrow County Detention Center.

Jeffrey Clayton Yancey of Winder was arrested on April 18. He was charged with 15 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children. Seven were for possessing illegal images and videos. Eight were for distributing other illegal images. Yancey was also charged with several drug charges to include Possession of Methamphetamine, 3 counts of Possession of a Dangerous Drug, and Possession of Marijuana Less than One Ounce. Steeley remains in jail at the Barrow County Detention Center.

All 3 cases are still under investigation. Investigators continue to conduct full forensic examinations on the electronics removed from the arrestees. More charges are pending should more illegal content or illegal acts be discovered.

The Barrow County Sheriff's Office remains vigilant in protecting children from those that exploit them.

OPEN RANGE DAY

Yes you read that right the Sheriff's Office first open range day for 2017 will be this Saturday April 1st. And no this is isn't an April Fools joke. The forecast shows it will be very nice that morning.

There will be a $10.00 charge per person to shoot. The monies collected are used to replace targets and upgrade our range. The Sheriff's Office will have instructors on sight to assist and make sure everyone stays safe while shooting.

We ask that the public bring their own firearms and ammunition to shoot. We will shoot pistols from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Rifles will be shot from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. We want our young people to learn how to safely shoot so anyone under the age of 18 needs to be accompanied by an adult to shoot so families are welcome.

The range is located at 1059 Briscoe Mill Road Bethlehem GA 30620. We hope to have a large crowd so come and enjoy the day with others who like to shoot and fellowship.
