Colorado Springs man arrested on charge of sexual exploitation of a child


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- In April of 2022, the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD) Internet Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

CSPD said the tip referenced an unknown person who was uploading hundreds of child sexual abuse images to a cloud-based service.

The investigation into the tip led detectives to an apartment in the 400 block of Lionstone Dr. in Colorado Springs. On Wed., Nov. 9, the CSPD ICAC Unit executed a search warrant at the apartment and arrested 25-year-old Nathyn Vega.

CSPD said Vega was booked on the charge of sexual exploitation of a child.

The ICAC Unit consists of El Paso County Sheriff's Office deputies, CSPD detectives, and special agents from Homeland Security.

No further information regarding this case is available at this time.
