Ohio man arrested in national child-porn sweep



Published: Thu, January 3, 2013 @ 1:05 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Federal authorities say an Ohio man was arrested as part of a national child pornography sweep that rescued 123 victims of sexual exploitation.

U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement said today that 31-year-old Mickell E. Close of Quincy, in western Ohio, was arrested Nov. 8 and faces federal charges of child pornography production.

Agents said they identified and rescued three children who Close secretly recorded in a bathroom to produce video and still images that he traded on the Internet.

Close’s public defender did not immediately respond to a phone message today.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security and other agencies arrested 245 people during “Operation Sunflower,” which was conducted from Nov. 1 to Dec. 7.
