Press Release

GASTONIA, N.C. - Gaston County Police have charged Wesley Lane Ross, age 18, of 324 Tot Dellinger Rd. Cherryville, NC with three (3) felony counts of 2nd degree sexual exploitation of a child and three (3) felony counts of 3rd degree sexual exploitation of a child.

The charges stem from a search warrant executed by Gaston County Police, with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations, on February 2, 2021.

The search came as a result of a cybercrime tip received from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC). During the search, County Police detectives seized electronic storage devices belonging to Ross. Forensic examinations were performed on the devices, which led to the discovery of videos containing child pornography.

Ross was arrested on March 3, 2021 and released from the Gaston County Jail, on a $10,000 unsecured bond.

The investigation continues and anyone with information is asked to contact Det. R.L. Smith at 704-866-3320 or CrimeStoppers at 704-861-8000.
