Possession of Child Pornography Arrest
Submitted By Officer A. Corpuz, Milpitas PD
In August 2011, the Milpitas Police Department received a report that San Jose resident Johnny Urias was possibly in possession of child pornography. Milpitas Police Detectives discovered Urias was a teacher at an elementary school in the Alum Rock School District, in San Jose.
In September 2011, Milpitas Police Detectives developed enough information to obtain and execute search warrants at Urias' previous home in Milpitas, his current home in San Jose, his classroom, and vehicle. Several computers were seized during the investigation. The Alum Rock School District was informed of the investigation and immediately placed Urias on leave from teaching in the school district.
The seized computers were sent to the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children (SV-ICAC) Task Force for forensic examination, and the investigation remained on-going. In May 2012, Milpitas Police Detectives developed probable cause to arrest Urias for possession of child pornography and manufacturing child pornography. Urias was arrested May 30 at his residence, 1400(B) Merry Lane in San Jose and booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail, Milpitas
Police Detectives have executed an additional search warrant at Urias' San Jose residence in search of additional evidence. The Milpitas Police Department has been working closely with the San Jose Police Department and the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office. Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to call the Milpitas Police Department at (408) 586-2400 or their local police department.
