Heberto Limas-Villers, 54, a coach with Real Soccer Club, was arrested Sept. 27 on suspicion of child pornography, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office announced in a news release.
According to the release, investigators with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children received a cyber tip that known child pornography had been shared through social media.
The IP address the image came from was allegedly found to be owned by Limas-Villers, the agency said in the release.
Investigators executed a search warrant on his residence, located in the east Centennial area, on Sept. 27. He was taken into custody at his residence and was booked into the Arapahoe County Detention Center, the agency said.
Limas-Villers was charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a child, a class 5 felony, according to the release.
Investigators are asking the public to call the agency’s tip line at (720) 874-8477 if they think they, or someone they know, may be a victim of Limas-Villers.
The arrest comes less than two months after the arrest of another employee of Real Soccer Club.
In August, Howard “Bud” Harper, who was employed by Real Soccer Club as an age coordinator and previously worked as a coach, was booked into the Arapahoe County Detention Center on 17 counts of sexual exploitation of children.
Investigators in the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about child pornography being traded from an IP address in Arapahoe County, the sheriff’s office said on Aug. 10.
The investigators discovered files containing alleged child pornography were being uploaded, and the files included underage victims ranging in age from toddlers to teens, according to the release. The sheriff’s office said investigators identified Harper as the suspect.
Deputy John Bartmann, a public information officer for Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, said in an email Sept. 27 that there is no connection between the two arrests and they are two separate incidents.
