COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC – On October 20, sheriff's deputies arrested Alberto Leon, 29, following an investigation involving the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He sent several nude photos of himself to the girl, while asking for similar images of the second-grader, according to court documents.
The illegal alien was taken into custody at Magnolia Greens Golf Course in Leland, where he works as a groundskeeper.
The investigation began in March, when a woman in Washington state called her local law enforcement agency after her child received the nude photographs. Homeland Security got involved and led them to Leon, of Woodyard Road in Riegelwood.
Investigators say Leon continued to interact with the child after she told him how old she was.
Leon was charged with felony dissemination of obscene material to a minor, and is currently being held at the Columbus County Jail on an ICE detainer.
