Bay County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a Panama City man for charges relating to the online sexual exploitation of a minor.
42-year-old Edward Jay Kincaid was arrested after Georgia authorities contacted the Bay County Sheriff’s Office and informed them a warrant existed for Kincaid.
He was located at his residence, and taken into custody for the outstanding warrant on Computer or Electronic Pornography & Child Exploitation.
Georgia authorities said Kincaid had been communicating with an undercover law enforcement officer.
During these communications he had sent still images and used a real-time web camera to interact with the undercover operative. These images depicted Kincaid nude, and were sent after he thought he was speaking with a fourteen year old child.
The Bay County Sheriff’s Office is part of the North Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and the Loganville Police Department is part of the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
This case is another example of how these task forces are working together to combat the online sexual exploitation of children.
