Fort Lauderdale police arrested a man they say has been using numerous internet connections throughout the city to transmit images of child pornography.
On Wednesday, the department charged Gene Martin Lumsden, 47, with promoting sexual performance by a child, transmission of pornography by an electronic device, and computer pornography.
Detectives worked with the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force to make the arrest at Lumsden’s Fort Lauderdale home. Deputies had received tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about Lumsden. Several electronic devices were seized from his home and have been analyzed.
“The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be forthcoming pending the outcome of the forensic electronic examinations,” Det. Tracy Figone said in a release on Friday.
Anyone with information can call 954-888-5350 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 800-843-5678.
