Arrest For Possession of Child Pornography


Burglary Suspects Arrested

A Ripon man was arrested today in connection with an ongoing internet crimes against children investigation. The Ripon Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) initiated a peer-to-peer investigation earlier this year regarding suspected child pornography. In February, Ripon detectives served a search warrant on a residence connected to this investigation. Electronic evidence was seized and later examined.
Today, at approximately 1108 hours, Ripon detectives returned to the suspect’s residence with a $1,000,000 arrest warrant for the suspect. The suspect was taken into custody without incident.
Kevin Andrew McManis (55) of Ripon was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail on a felony charge of Possession of Child Pornography.
Ripon Police Department spokesperson Lt. Steve Merchant said, “We would like to thank the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Modesto Police Department, and the San Joaquin County District Attorneys Office for their assistance during this complicated investigation.
