Los Lagos Security Guard Arrested for Child Porn


The Placer County Sheriff's Office arrested a private security guard for possession of child pornography Thursday night.

James Lee Johnson, 49, of Citrus Heights, was booked at the Placer County Jail on charges of possessing child pornography. His bail is set at $50,000.

The case came to the attention of Placer County sheriff's detectives Thursday, after Johnson left a computer thumb drive at the Los Lagos security office/guard shack off of Auburn Folsom Road in Granite Bay, where he's employed. After realizing he'd left it behind, he called another employee to place it in his work mailbox. The employee looked at the contents of the thumb drive, found child pornography and contacted the Placer County Sheriff's Office.

Detectives served a search warrant at Johnson's Citrus Heights home last night, where he was arrested and several computers were removed for forensic exam.
