The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) sent a cyber tip to OSBI in late 2020, after a social media platform detected child pornography files being uploaded on a Mangum IP address.

OSBI’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit launched an investigation that was assisted by the District 3 Task Force, Altus Police Department, Greer County Sheriff’s Office and Mangum Police Department.

Agents executed a search warrant in the 500 block of Indiana Street in Mangum on July 29, upon which, Pierro was arrested on suspicion of lewd or indecent acts to a child under 16 and rape by instrumentation. He was booked into the Greer County Jail.

Pierro was arrested on additional complaints on Tuesday, Oct. 12, while in custody at the jail.

He remains in the jail on a $750,000 bond.

“If you suspect a child is being sexually exploited, contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST or www.cybertipline.com,” OSBI officials said.
