Former Holtville Police Officer Arrested for Child Pornography

TEMECULA, Calif. – A multi-agency task force arrested a former police officer Tuesday after about two dozen pornographic images of children were allegedly found on his computer.

Hector Jesus Zamora, 42, was arrested near his Temecula home by members of Riverside County’s Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement (SAFE) Task Force.

Authorities say the images found on the computer include photos depicting Zamora with girls that may have been minors. SAFE Task Force officials say they believe those photos may have been taken about 10 years ago when Zamora lived in Holtville, Calif., where he worked as a police officer.
