The Turlock Police Department arrested a Turlocker for possession and distribution of child pornography.
On Thursday, Turlock Police Detectives arrested Gary Bishop, a 42 year old male from Turlock, after an investigation led to the discovery of over 10,000 images of child pornography.
Last month, a search warrant was served at Bishop’s residence after he was believed to be sharing explicit photographs depicting children over the internet.
Several computer hard drives were taken during that time for further examination.
At this time, the Turlock Police Department has not received any information indicating whether or not Bishop has personally victimized any children.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective Tim Redd at 209-664-7325, the Turlock Police Department’s Tip Line at 209-668-5550 extension 6780, or email at email@example.com.
