An Indiana man was arrested after he reportedly sent child pornography to a juvenile in Los Osos.
According to a news release, Sheriff’s deputies were contacted by a Los Osos resident on Sept. 25 regarding a suspected criminal act.

“It was learned that a minor resident of San Luis Obispo County was contacted on the Internet via an online gaming platform and lewd images were sent to the victim,” Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Cipolla said.

The initial crime report was taken and forwarded to the “San Luis Obispo County Counter Human Trafficking Team,” Cipolla said, “a team comprised of investigators from the Sheriff’s Special Operations Unit and the District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Investigation, who assumed investigative responsibility for the continuing investigation.”

Investigators determined that the child porn was sent by a man in Columbus, Ind. The SLO County team contacted the FBI office in Santa Maria, which brought in an FBI office in Indiana, and along with the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Office in Indiana, took over the case.

The suspect was identified as Jordan Fields, 20 of Columbus, Ind., who was interviewed by the FBI and Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Office on Nov. 13.

Cipolla said Fields was subsequently arrested on suspicion of child exploitation and possession of child pornography. “Criminal proceedings are pending in Bartholomew County, Indiana,” Cipolla said.
