An investigation by special agents with the Technical Services Unit of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, with the assistance of the Morristown Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Department, and Homeland Security Investigations, has resulted in the arrest of a McMinnville man on exploitation charges.
In 2018, TBI agents received information via a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that an individual was in possession of files believed to be child pornography.
During the course of the investigation, agents determined that the account involved belonged to an individual who was subsequently identified as Darrick BrandonWebb. The investigation further revealed that Webb, 36, was in possession of more than 100 images consistent with child pornography.
On Nov. 1, the Warren County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Webb with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor and eight counts of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
Webb was arrested on Nov. 6, and booked into the Warren County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
