ICE arrests Port St. Lucie man charged with possession of child pornography

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents, working jointly with Martin County Sheriff's Office (MCSO), arrested Jeannie Biggs, 61, of Port St. Lucie on April 6 for possession of child pornography.

ICE HSI agents, along with MCSO and Port St. Lucie Police Department officers, executed a search warrant at Biggs' residence and seized his computer, among other materials. A preliminary forensics analysis of his computer revealed the presence of child pornography.

If convicted, Biggs faces a minimum five-year sentence and a maximum of up to 20 years in prison.

This case is part of Operation Predator, an ICE-led initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including those who travel overseas for sex with minors, Internet child pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders, and child sex traffickers. Individuals with information about suspected child predators are encouraged to call 1 866 DHS 2ICE. For more information, visit www.ice.gov.
