Investigations lead to the arrest of an Eastvale man for child pornography, growing marijuana illegally and theft of utilities.
On Thursday, September 12, 2019, about 7:00 AM, members of the Riverside County SAFE/ICAC Task Force (Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement/Internet Crimes Against Children) and members of the Region-7 Gang Task Force conducted a joint operation regarding the service of a search warrant at a residence in the 7000 Block of Canterwood Court in the City of Eastvale.
The search warrant stemmed from a lengthy investigation regarding the on-line sexual exploitation of children. Task force officers contacted the single occupant and renter inside the residence. He was identified as 45-year-old Eastvale resident, Bryan James Green.

Green was later booked in custody at the Robert Presley Detention Center and booked into custody for the following charges:
