Corpus Christi Police have arrested a local man on charges of possessing child pornography and abusing children.

According to CCPD, 43-year-old Mario Moreno is charged with Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child, a 1st degree felony, and Possession or Promotion of Child Pornography, a 2nd degree felony.

Police say the children were under the age of 14.

Authorities are also asking parents to speak with their children about internet safety by:

  • Creating and setting clear rules for children and enforcing those rules.
  • Knowing about privacy settings and ensuring that your child uses them.
  • Speaking to your child about the dangers of befriending those that they do not know.
  • Contacting law enforcement if a child reports being solicited, threatened, stalked, or if a person requests to meet the child in person.
  • Ensuring children do not give out personal information about themselves, whether it be identifying information or personality traits.
