Press Release

GASTONIA, N.C. - Gaston County Police have charged Cameron Shawn Franklin, age 27, of 200 Oakhill Road, Iron Station, NC with two counts of Third Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor and one count of Secret Peeping.

Gaston County Police investigators received an Internet Cyber Tip, which resulted in the investigation and eventual charging in this case.

The Gaston County Police Department is a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force. The ICAC task force program assists local and State law enforcement agencies with their investigative response to offenders who use the internet, online communication, or other computer technology to sexually exploit children.

The investigation focused on the downloading of digital images. The secret peeping charge stemmed from an investigation of a laptop computer seized from Franklin.

Franklin was arrested and booked into the Gaston County Jail on Tuesday, October 3 on a $150,000 bond.

The investigation continues and anyone with information is asked to contact Det. W.M. Sampson at 704-866-3320 or CrimeStoppers at 704-861-8000.
