(Boise) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has announced investigators with his Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit arrested two Idaho Falls men Wednesday for alleged sexual crimes against children.
35-year-old Bryon Lee Moore and 33-year-old Brandon Jay Rydalch were booked into the Bonneville County Jail. Moore was arrested for alleged Sexual Exploitation of a Child and Lewd Conduct with a Minor Child Under 16. Rydalch was arrested for alleged Sexual Exploitation of a Child.
An investigation began in June 2017 when investigators discovered Moore allegedly downloading child pornography over peer-to-peer networks. Investigators obtained a search warrant for Moore’s Idaho Falls residence and executed the warrant Wednesday morning.
The ICAC Unit was assisted by the Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office and the Idaho Falls Police Department.
Anyone with information regarding the exploitation of children is encouraged to contact local police, the Attorney General’s ICAC Unit at 208-334-4527 or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
The Attorney General’s ICAC Unit works with the Idaho ICAC Task Force, a coalition of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, to investigate and prosecute individuals who use the internet to criminally exploit children.
