Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Local and federal officials have apprehended a man after he engaged in the sexual exploitation of multiple juveniles online, according to authorities. The Fontana Police Department was first alerted to the suspect by the FBI’s Inland Regional Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force on November 16. The suspect, identified as 42-year-old Ryan VanDeCar, allegedly used various online chatting platforms to communicate with both minors and adults in an attempt to obtain a large amount of explicit photos and videos of child sexual abuse material.

Due to the seriousness and extent of the investigation, the Fontana Police Department collaborated with the FBI, the Orange County Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory, and the District Attorney’s office. A search warrant was executed at multiple locations associated with VanDeCar in Chino and Temecula. As a result, VanDeCar was arrested, and law enforcement seized several electronic devices that revealed his involvement in the online sexual exploitation of multiple juvenile victims.

Authorities are now seeking the public’s assistance in locating additional victims who may have been sexually exploited by VanDeCar online. The primary platforms he used were Kik and Telegram.
