Juvenile Male Arrested for Disorderly Conduct Relating to Revenge Porn

On October 18, 2020 just before midnight, officers responded to a residence in Glendale regarding a revenge pornography investigation. A juvenile female was scrolling through the social media platform Snapchat, when she noticed several people she follows repost an account that had pictures and videos of naked, under-age girls. The pictures and videos had names listed, and sometimes what middle or high school (in Glendale) they attended. During this investigation, a detective received a phone call from an officer who had responded to another call for service regarding revenge pornography.

Throughout the investigation, detectives learned of over 14 under-age victims involved in having nude or partially nude photographs of them posted online by this same account. Detectives followed up with each of the identified victims, and learned of a potential suspect. On October 20, 2020, the detectives were granted a search warrant for Snapchat relating to the accounts.


On February 9, 2021, detectives received information from Snapchat that confirmed a suspect based on IP Addresses and other account information. The suspect appeared to be out of the country at the time the posts were made. On February 10, 2021, detectives were granted a search warrant for the suspect’s residence. On February 19, 2021, detectives went to the (juvenile male) suspect’s house and spoke with him regarding all of the information obtained. Ultimately, the juvenile was arrested for disorderly conduct relating to revenge porn.
