Investigators suspect additional victims, ask public with information to call OSP

COURTESY DESCHUTES COUNTY SHERIFF - Law enforcement released Andres Carrera-Garcia's booking photo in hopes it will help families identify children who have had unsupervised contact with Carrera-Garcia.

Oregon State Police say Andres Carrera-Garcia, 30, of Crooked River Ranch admitted to sexually molesting a 2-year old child while he babysat the child at his residence in Redmond.

Carrera-Garcia confessed to officers during a search Wednesday, June 29, of his Crooked River Ranch home, which uncovered hundreds of images of child sex abuse material downloaded from the internet. Digital images supported his admissions of the abuse, which police say occurred in late 2020 and early 2021.

OSP released a photo of Carrera-Garcia because detectives believe it is possible Carrera-Garcia victimized other children. They want people who have children who had unsupervised contact with the suspect to call OSP at (800) 422-0776 and refer to case number SP22-026887.

Carrera-Garcia was arrested on charges of sodomy, sexual abuse, contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor, sexual misconduct and encouraging child sexual abuse.

The arrest took place in Jefferson County. Deschutes County Sheriff deputies and Redmond Police assisted.
