Joshua Fulton, 32, was taken into custody about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 10, 2024, after the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office received a request for assistance regarding a child exploitation investigation from the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office in Louisiana. 

Fulton had been identified as a suspect and was believed to be living in San Angelo, according to the release.

The Tom Green County Sheriff's Office was able to quickly obtain a search-and-arrest warrant, and the warrant was executed in the unit block of East 33rd Street.

The Sheriff's Office reported it has reason to believe Fulton may have other child victims of sexual exploitation.
