Hoquiam man arrested over ‘large amount’ of sexually explicit images

Detectives from the Washington State Patrol (WSP) Missing and Exploited Children’s Task Force (MECTF) with the assistance of detectives from the WSP Criminal Investigation Division and the Hoquiam Police Department have arrested a man for possessing and dealing a large number of images that show sexually explicit conduct involving minors.

The investigation originated from cyber-tips received by the Seattle Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).  The illegal activity revolved around three web based blogging, file sharing, and social networking websites: Tumblr, Kik, and Dropbox. 35-year old Jason Wayne Parks of Hoquiam was taken into custody without incident on Wednesday.

A search warrant was ultimately issued for a Hoquiam residence and a local business in Ocean Shores, which was Parks’ place of employment.  During the morning hours of January 29, 2014, detectives executed the search warrant and ultimately arrested Parks for the investigation of dealing and possessing large numbers of images of sexually explicit conduct involving minors.  During the search warrant, detectives seized digital media devices from the residence.  A forensic preview of some of the devices confirmed the presence of illegal images.  The warrant for the business was also executed.  A forensic examination of the computers Parks had access to there were examined resulting in no evidence of illegal activity being located.

Parks was booked into the Grays Harbor County Jail on multiple charges of Dealing and Possession of Depictions of Minors Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct.  The investigation is ongoing, with additional charges possible.

The Washington State Patrol urges people to contact MECTF should they have information regarding Parks and this case: 360-704-2410

MECTF is a multi-agency task force within the WSP comprised of detectives from the WSP and the Lakewood and Shelton Police Department’s. MECTF provides support to local agencies across the state in cases involving missing and abducted children and child exploitation.
