MOULTRIE, Ga. — A registered sex offender is back behind bars after law enforcement officers say they found child pornography on his computer.

Victor Elias, 62, 167 Unity Lane, has been charged with multiple counts of sexual exploitation of children, Colquitt County Sheriff’s Investigator Sgt. Kat Johnson said Tuesday.

Elias was convicted in Florida and registered as a sex offender, Johnson said. When he moved to Colquitt County, he came under the supervision of the Department of Community Supervision.

Probation officers with that department were making a routine offender check at his residence when they found probable cause to believe he had child pornography on the computer, Johnson said. The sheriff’s office investigated and found sufficient evidence to charge him.

“He has been charged,” Johnson said, “but the investigation is ongoing into uncovering as many files as possible.”

Johnson said the files found on the computer did not appear to be “homemade,” which is to say investigators found no evidence that Colquitt Countians made or were victimized in them.

Information from the files will be used by other law enforcement agencies to try to identify victims or perpetrators, she said.
