Fayetteville, AR – On Sept. 17, 2009,
Keith A. McGarry (41 years of age) and Jeremy Estes (37 years of age)
were indicted in the Western District of Arkansas on federal charges
related to the receipt and possession of sexually explicit materials
The indictments, which are unrelated, were the result of investigations
conducted by the Springdale Police Department's Internet Crimes Against
Children (ICAC) Task Force, the United States Probation Office in
Fayetteville Arkansas, and the Northwest Arkansas Sex Offender & Violent
Crime Task Force headed by the U. S. Marshals Service.
On August 24th and August 13th respectively, task force investigators,
following up on allegations indicating McGarry and Estes may be in
possession of sexually explicit images involving children, executed
search warrants and seized electronic evidence found in McGarry and
Pursuant to enforcing a special condition of supervision for search
against Estes, the United States Probation Office in Fayetteville,
Arkansas requested assistance from the Northwest Arkansas Sex Offender &
Violent Crime Task Force and the Springdale Police Department. The
subsequent search found Estes to be in violation of his federal
supervision based on new law violations.
Keith McGarry, a resident of Republic, Mo., commuted to Northwest
Arkansas as part of his employment, and Jeremy Estes is a Springdale
resident employed in Fayetteville, Ark. Both McGarry and Estes are
awaiting federal arraignment on these charges.
These investigations and indictments are part of an ongoing commitment
to combat the online exploitation of children by the Springdale Police
Department, the United States Attorney’s Office, and the Northwest
Arkansas Sex Offender & Violent Crime Task Force. These indictments are
the result of investigations, and do not prove guilt. Both McGarry and
Estes are considered innocent until proven guilty in federal court.
