Man sent child porn to 10 different people, police say

An east Las Vegas Valley man faces 15 counts of distributing and three counts of possessing child porn after police say they found graphic images on two of his iPhones, records show.

All Saldivar was arrested after he allegedly sent 15 files of child pornography to 10 different people between April 19 and April 27, 2021, according to a Metropolitan Police Department arrest report.

The investigation began after a detective with the department’s internet crimes against children task force received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a user of the Kik messaging app had been sending images depicting child sex abuse to other users.

In an interview with investigators, Saldivar admitted to viewing and sending child pornography to other people, the Metro arrest report stated.

He turned himself in on Aug. 9, records show. His bail was set at $100,000 and he remained in custody at the Clark County Detention Center.

Saldivar’s next court date is set for Aug. 29.
