Multi-agency investigation leads to child porn arrest

Posted: Updated:
SARASOTA (FOX 13) -

Undercover detectives say they've nabbed a 42-year-old Sarasota man who was allegedly trading child pornography online.

Working with the FBI, the Sarasota Police Department arrested and charged Ryan E. Bartley with two federal counts of child pornography and distribution.

He was taken into custody Monday.

Detectives said the Child Exploitive Taskforce conducted an undercover sting and found probably cause for a federal search warrant.

That taskforce is made up of personnel from several different agencies, including those in Bradenton, Cape Coral, Charlotte County, Clewiston, Collier County, Lee County and Sarasota.

Bartley is expected to make a court appearance Wednesday.
