In a recent development, Detective Ridge of Ocala Police Department has successfully apprehended Zackry Lloyd, 26, on charges of possession of child pornography. The arrest took place on February 24th, marking a significant breakthrough in combating online crimes against children.

The dedication and diligence exhibited by Detective Ridge in this case are commendable and reflect the unwavering commitment of law enforcement to protect children from online predators.

This successful outcome serves as a testament to the effectiveness of collaborative efforts between law enforcement agencies and advocacy organizations in combating online crimes against children. Detective Ridge’s exemplary work deserves recognition and appreciation for his contributions to ensuring the safety and well-being of our community’s youth.
