Denton County Sheriff’s Office deputies execute a search warrant on Terrace Drive early Tuesday.

The homes of two Lantana men were searched Tuesday morning after a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding sexually explicit images of children being uploaded to specific computer accounts.

Charges are pending after Denton County Sheriff’s deputies executed search warrants on a home in the 1100 block of Fortner Road and another home in the 1300 block of Terrace Drive.

Deputies worked with Homeland Security Investigators and the Flower Mound Police Department to retrieve computers and other potential evidence in connection with child pornography, according to a news release from the Denton County Sheriff’s Office.

Currently under investigation are Steven Randolph Williams, 67, who lives on Fortner Road, and Kevin Andrew Borgus, 22, who lives on Terrace Drive, according to sheriff’s officials.

In the news release, sheriff’s officials indicated Williams confessed to uploading and trading images of underage children via the internet using multiple email addresses. A preliminary search of Williams’ computer resulted in multiple images of underage children, according to the release.

Sheriff’s officials said Borgus also confessed to uploading and trading images of underage children via the internet and social media accounts. A preliminary search of Borgus’ computer resulted in multiple images of underage children, according to the release.

Charges have not been filed in either case pending final computer forensic results.

The cyber-tip came to the Dallas Police Department which, after a preliminary investigation, determined the sources being used to transmit the images were located at addresses in Denton County. The Dallas Police Department then sent the case to the Denton County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation.

A copy of the search warrant obtained from the sheriff’s office showed deputies were searching for videos, photographs, computers, electronic storage devices, cameras, cell phones, external hard drives as well as writings, documents and receipts associated with the creation, storage, sharing and viewing of pornographic images of children.

The warrants were signed by 158th District Court Judge Steve Burgess on Monday afternoon and executed by sheriff’s deputies early Tuesday. Lantana residents noted lines of unmarked and marked law enforcement vehicles in the Sierra and Bandera neighborhoods around 9:30 a.m.

“We take these crimes seriously,” said Sheriff Will Travis in a news release. “And we will take whatever measures necessary to pursue the perpetrators in our efforts to keep our children safe.”
