11 Arrested for Alleged Sex Crimes Against Children in Oakley

by CC News

OAKLEY, CA – The Oakley Police Department hosted an operation May 24-31 that involved identifying and arresting adults who use the internet to seek out children to sexually exploit and abuse them.

Oakley Police Detective J. Dombrouski coordinated the operation, supported by Sergeant K. Morris, Detective B. Gill, Detective N. Pistello, Detective R. Schiff and a host of other Oakley police officers. The coordination efforts included making sure enough personnel were dedicated and in place to account for an appropriate number of takedown teams and making sure there was enough technical, forensic and investigative support to lead to a successful operation.

This operation resulted in 11 arrests of adults who established inappropriate and sexually-based online relationships with who they believed were minor children. The 11 suspects arrested attempted to physically meet up with their intended target by driving to a predesignated “meet location.”

Some brought candy with them as well as sexual contraception items. One of the suspects is a known Boy Scout Troop Master; another suspect is a known behavioral therapist for children with special needs. All 11 suspects were booked into jail on felony charges.

The identities of the 11 suspects who were arrested are:

  • Isaias Valdez, male, 30, Pittsburg
  • Jason Pearson, male, 48, Concord
  • Jonathan Henriquez-Garcia, male, 32, Antioch
  • Anthony Taormina, male, 64, Oakley
  • Daniel Sigmundson, male, 51, Concord
  • Ashneel Singh, male, 29, Hayward
  • Humayoun Kabir, male, 60, Antioch
  • Zuhair Mukatash, male, 59, South San Francisco
  • Luis Cuevas-Morales, male, 25, Hayward
  • Yerson Cruz-Perez, male, 27, Pittsburg
  • Elio Rodriguez-Martinez, male, 29, Oakland

“I thoroughly appreciate all of the efforts and diligence exhibited by all of the law-enforcement personnel, Deputy District Attorneys, and support staff members that resulted in the arrests of these very dangerous men, said Oakley Police Chief Paul Beard. “Furthermore, I am very proud of my investigations staff who coordinated everything that went into this operation, and I am honored to be their Chief. I have always appreciated proactive, task-oriented missions. This operation ranks at the top of what I consider to be the most important type of proactive, task-oriented missions. In a very literal sense, the innocence of children was saved by the efforts that went into this operation. Knowing some of the back stories that went into these arrests, I have a very visceral feeling of disgust about the men who were arrested. I believe I speak for everybody involved in what happened when I say I fully support the prosecutors as they manage the criminal filings and cases against these men while they seek complete accountability against them. Stay safe Oakley and hold your children tight.”

This was done in conjunction with the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force and it included the following agencies:

  • Antioch Police Department
  • Brentwood Police Department
  • Concord Police Department
  • Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office
  • Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office
  • Contra Costa County Safe Streets Task Force
  • Danville Police Department
  • Federal Bureau of Investigation
  • Homeland Security Investigations
  • Pittsburg Police Department
  • United States Secret Service
  • Walnut Creek Police Department

Hey, so what area is the “well known boy scout troop master” from? Because I’m a leader in our pack in Oakley and I’ve asked around and nobody recognizes any of the names on this list. This title is terrifying especially when people think the predator is in their backyard. So where is this guy from?

Great job law enforcement on this takedown.. keep these kind of sting operations going. We all know there are a lot more disgusting People out there!!

I just heard the guy Anthony, worked with him.. I always thought there was something off with that guy! He is now obviously fired!! But heard he’s already out!! Do they just get a slap on the wrist with a felony charge? How many times do they have to be caught before they get put away and with gen pop.. not under protective custody??

This may be a little grafic for some but: I say amputate up to their elbows, remove the private parts, their tongue and toes.
