Convicted sex offender found in possession of child pornography during Floyd County search warrant

According to a Floyd County Police Department incident report, on April 12th, 2022, FCPD Investigators executed a search warrant at 610 Billy Pyle Road. According to the report, “The search warrant was in response to information from Hall County Sheriff’s Office about child sexual abuse imagery being traded via the Internet from this location. Benjamin Zachary Moore, 29 of Cedartown, who is a registered sex offender, admitted to viewing the material that depicted children being sexually abused or engaged in sexually explicit activities.” Moore is a convicted sex offender and was found guilty in 2016 of sexual battery against a child under 16 years of age. The warrant was taken for his arrest following his failure to follow the sex offender registry laws. Moore was booked into the Floyd County Jail and charged with sex offender registration violation, sexual exploitation of children, and child pornography.
