Morriston Man Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

April 12, 2019
On 4/10/2019 at
approximately 0800 hours Levy County Detectives served a search warrant at the residence
located at 14850 SE 28th Street in Morriston, Florida. This warrant was based
on a tip sent to the Cyber Tipline and received by the National Center for
Missing and Exploited Children and the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC)
Unit. Jeffrey E. Lutz (5/30/1964) was located inside by Detectives and said he
was the sole occupant of the home. The tip forwarded to the LCSO Criminal Investigations
Division was for child pornography which was either possessed, manufactured or
distributed and was associated with 16 cyber tips directly linked to the
Internet Protocol address designated to this residential address.
LCSO Detectives received
assistance from the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Cyber Unit who were able to
confirm Lutz’s personal computer contained images of child pornography. During
a subsequent interview with Lutz, he confessed to seeking out, downloading and
distributing sexually explicit images of children.
Lutz has been arrested
and charged with nine counts of possession of obscene material. He is being
held in the Levy County Detention Bureau in lieu of a $450,000.00 bond.
