Child pornographer arrested in 2015 pleads guilty; gets 40 years
Michael Peter Marrero, W-M, 42 YOA(Paulding County, GA) On July 16, 2018 Michael Peter Marrero (W/M, 42 YOA) stood in front of Paulding County Superior Court Chief Judge Tonny Beavers and pled guilty to 61 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Children (possession of child pornography).

The plea was non-negotiated and Judge Beavers sentenced Marrero to 40 years where he would serve 20 years in state prison. The remaining 20 years will be served on probation and he will be listed as a Registered Sex Offender and will be bound by all of the sexual offender conditions and restrictions that apply to that designation.

In October of 2015, Detectives with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children Unit launched an investigation into Marrero. After a yearlong investigation into Marrero, Detectives obtained a search warrant in March of 2016 for his residence. While Deputies and Detectives served the search warrant, they discovered that Marrero was actively online attempting to delete evidence during their entry. It was later determined that Marrero’s attempts to delete evidence were futile.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation CEACC Unit assisted with the computer forensics portion of the case and were able to recover most of the files Marrero attempted to delete. Marrero was arrested at the time the search warrant was executed and subsequently indicted by a Paulding County Grand Jury on 61 counts of Sexual
Exploitation of Children (OCGA 16-12-100) for the possession and distribution of child pornography.

The Paulding County Sheriff’s Office has been an affiliate member of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force since 2008.

If you have information on anyone who possesses child pornography, please call the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children Unit at (770) 445-6105.CONTENT

Sheriff Gary Gulledge noted, “Terry is an excellent Deputy who works hard every day. He is constantly out in the community arresting criminals helping to keep Paulding County a safe place to live and work. I cannot think of anyone that is more deserving of this award for 2018”.

PSCO re-unites toddler with mother in Scoggins Road incident

20 Jun 2018

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page



 
Juvenile Reunited With Mother

A local resident living in the vicinity of Hart Rd and Scoggins, rescued a two-year old wandering down the road at about 8 a.m. this morning and alerted the Paulding Sheriff's office of the find.

Apparently the child made his early morning exit through a pet door of the parents home and in the spirit of discovery, found the community willing to keep him safe and help reunite him with his mother.

That happened when the child's frantic mom called the SO and was told her child was safe. 

Deputies did visit the home and noted that all doors were locked leaving them to surmise the child apparently found an alternative exit from the home through the "doggy door."  The SO press release (below) noted that the investigation found no evidence of negligence or neglect and filed this incident in the do right file.
 
-----------
On 06/20/2018 at approximately 0800hrs, the Paulding County Sheriff's Office received a call regarding a citizen who had found a child that appeared to be alone. The child was approximately 18-24 months old and was walking down the roadway near the intersection of Scoggins Rd and Hart Rd.

Deputies and Investigators met with the citizen and brought the child, who appeared to be unharmed, to the Sheriff's Office. Deputies and investigators then began attempting to locate the child's parents immediately.

A short while later, the mother of the child called dispatch to report her two year old missing. Investigators then reunited the child with the mother.

All of the doors to the home were locked and secured, however the juvenile appeared to have found his way outside through a "doggie door" and began walking. The home was in the immediate area of where he was located. As a result of a lack of apparent negligence, charges will not be brought against anyone in this case.

Hiram High School Senior Arrested for Gun on Campus

25 May 2018

Hiram High School Senior Arrested for Gun on Campus

beline.JPGA Hiram HS senior, poised to graduate in a ceremony tomorrow, will instead be sitting in the Paulding County jail as his classmates receive their diplomas ... because of a gun he secreted in his car.

Notice that the student may have a gun came from this Instagram® photograph where he proudly (or stupidly) displayed the weapon in his waistband.

Authorities say there is little concern that the 18-year old student was planning any kind of mass school shooting but current law states that it is a felony to have a weapon on school grounds.  The school resource officer, who monitors the social media pages of students for hints of what's going on, observed the photo.

Here is how the SO described the incident in which the Brian Perry Belin, Jr. faces felony possession of a firearm on school grounds charges.

On Friday May 25, 2018 at approximately 9:51 AM School Resource Officers with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office arrested a Hiram High School senior for possession of a weapon on school grounds. Paulding County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Officers constantly monitor social media outlets looking for nefarious activity amongst students.

This morning at approximately 9:01 AM School Resource Officers observed a photo that had been posted on Brian Perry Belin, Jr.’s Instagram® page where he had what appeared to be a semiautomatic pistol in his waistband.

In light of the numerous tragic incidents at our schools across the country, School Resource Officers and school administrators wasted no time in launching an investigation into this incident.

Belin, Jr., who was scheduled to graduate from Hiram High School tomorrow morning, was removed from graduation practice this morning and asked about the photograph and the gun by School Resource Officers and administrators.

Belin, Jr. told administrators that the gun was inside his vehicle which was parked on campus. When administrators searched Belin, Jr.’s vehicle, they located a loaded semi-automatic pistol that matched the one that was pictured in the Instagram® post.

Belin, Jr. was subsequently arrested and charged with the following offense: Brian Perry Belin, Jr. (B/M, 18 YOA)
 -Possession of a Weapon on School Grounds (F)
School Resource Officers and administrators with the Paulding County School District are still actively investigating this incident. It should be noted that we do not believe that this suspect had any intention of conducting a school shooting at Hiram High School.

However, it is uncertain what Belin, Jr. was doing with the pistol on school grounds. It also does not appear that the photograph was taken on school grounds either. This portion of the investigation is ongoing.

Belin, Jr. is currently being held without bond in the Paulding County Jail.

If you or your child have any information about this incident or any other incident where school safety is in question, please feel free to contact the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office at (770) 443-3010 or the Paulding County School District at (770) 443-8000.
