Guam - A yearlong inquiry into child pornography by the Federal Bureau of Investigation has resulted in an indictment. 30-year-old Galileo Cacapit Cruz was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of receipt of child pornography and a forfeiture allegation.

Court documents state that between April 1 and September 15 of 2010, Cruz received visual depictions of child porn. According to KUAM News archives, last year the FBI was able to track images of minors engaged in sexually explicit acts being sent to a home in latte heights. In April 2010 agents executed a search warrant and seized numerous items to include several computers, digital cell phones and cameras, and DVDs. 

Law enforcement authorities had been able to determine based on IP addresses, that someone in the home received and transmitted the child pornography on eight difference occasions beginning in November 2009. 

Cruz's charges also include a forfeiture allegation for an Apple Macbook computer that was confiscated.
