Red Bank Man Among 25 Arrested in Child Porn Sting

Manuel Sanchez-Olivarez faces charges, as does a Rumson man.

A Red Bank man is accused of possession and distribution of child pornography, Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa announced Wednesday.

Manuel Sanchez-Olivarez, 37, was among 25 people arrested as part of an operation aimed at child pornography, including child rape videos. The list of the accused included two other Monmouth men: Christopher Brondi, 57, of Rumson and Steven Anan, 52, of Neptune City.

Dozens of law enforcement agencies and more than 50 officers took part in the effort, dubbed Operation Ever Vigilant. The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office and the West Long Branch Police Department contributed to the effort, according to a press release issued by the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General (OAG).

The Digital Technology Investigations Unit of the New Jersey State Police began the investigation approximately three months ago by searching for New Jersey residents who were making child pornography available to others.  These files show pre-pubescent boys and girls being sexually molested by being penetrated, or by being coerced into performing sexual acts on themselves or others, the release stated.

“Anyone who views and distributes child pornography – particularly the type of child rape videos targeted in this operation – puts himself in league with the predators who sexually assault children to create these videos,” Chiesa said.

Below is a list of those arrested during Operation Ever Vigilant. Each was charged with second-degree distribution of child pornography and fourth-degree possession of child pornography:

  • Stephen Rainone, 27, South Amboy, Middlesex County
