Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Victor Miller, 27, on an unrelated weapons charge Tuesday (April 28). Following a cyber-crime tip received in January, Miller was already the subject of a Mountain View Police Department investigation. Upon his arrest, police interviewed Miller and searched his home, leading to additional evidence.

Police discovered Miller was allegedly the owner of an online account that contained child pornography, including nearly 100 photographs and videos of children as young as toddler age. Detectives believe Miller distributed the images to at least one other person.

Miller also allegedly molested and had sexually graphic conversations with minors. According to Mountain View police, he created accounts on Care.com and Liveme.com – a caretaking website he used to post his availability as a babysitter and an app typically used by kids but “frequented by child predators,” respectively – and was an “avid user” of both.

Miller is charged with two counts of attempted lewd and lascivious acts involving children, contact or communication with knowledge and intent to commit specified offenses, two counts of possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography and arrangement of a meeting with a minor for purposes of engaging in certain lewd and lascivious behavior. He is currently being held without bail in the Santa Clara County Main Jail, according to the court system’s inmate locator portal. Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said Miller was arrested on a no-bail warrant. He appeared in court Wednesday and was denied bail.

Police department officials said they are “extremely concerned” there may be additional victims in the area.
