The Pasco County Sheriff's Office has been making headlines lately by arresting child predators.
Edgar Diaz-Colon, 33, was arrested on November 6th on a warrant that had been issued for his arrest for failure to appear on a drug charge from earlier this year.
Two days later, on Friday, November 8th, he was charged with 11 counts, 10 for possession of child pornography, and one for promotion of sexual performance by a child.
Diaz-Colon is accused of molesting a three year old child, and officers state that one of the videos recovered from his phone shows him in the very act. They are currently investigating to determine if there are other victims either in Pasco County or elsewhere.
On Thursday, November 7th, a similar series of events transpired with the arrest of Damion Butler, 24. He was initially taken into custody for a warrant issued due to a failure to appear concerning a previous charge.
The following day, Butler was charged with a single felony count of lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under the age of 12.
According to detectives, the child related that there had been several occasions between October 1st and November 6th when Butler had shared a bed with her and touched her. She told detectives that he was her “boyfriend/husband,” and that he had told her to keep their secret.
When interviewed, Butler is said to have confessed to touching the child.
