Arrest – Possession of Suspected Child Pornography

Arrested: John Baptist Delorimier, 72 year old male, Bolinas, CA

In December 2019, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office received a National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) Cyber Tip line Report that there was a possible suspect soliciting, sharing and/or receiving nude photographs of minors via a web based platform.

Through an extensive investigation, Detectives determined the activity was believed to be originating from a residence in Bolinas, CA 

Detectives identified Delorimier as the suspect during their investigation and determined he was residing at a residence in Bolinas, CA. This morning detectives served a search warrant at his residence and arrested Delorimier in a vehicle leaving the residence. A preliminary investigation into his personal electronic devices revealed material depicting obscene images of a minor.

The evidence seized in this case will undergo additional forensic examination.  There is no indication that any of the images are victims from Marin County.

Delorimier was booked into the Marin County Jail on the following charge:

311.11(A) PC – Possession of Obscene Material

His bail is set at $1,000,000 dollars.

No booking photograph or further information will be released at this time to protect the integrity of the investigation while it continues.
