Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Orlando Cyber Crime Task Force executed two search warrants at a residence for Donald Noble, 80, that led to charges of child pornography and his arrest in Vermont.
Noble resides at 7119 Honeycomb Street, Orlando, and travels seasonally to Vermont. He was arrested by Vermont law enforcement on Thursday on 10 counts of possession of child pornography. The search warrants were in support of a child pornography investigation launched by Vermont authorities. Vermont State police arrested Noble on similar charges on October 9, 2017.
During one search warrant, FDLE agents found evidence of child pornography on videotapes and digital media. A subsequent warrant led to the seizure of thousands of photos of young boys who were clothed but unaware, possibly, that their images were taken. All of the materials were seized for further investigation and possible identification of the subjects.
While some of the photographs seized have already led to the identification of at least 14 subjects, authorities believe more are possible in both Florida and Vermont. Noble may have had a background in photography that gave him access to children. The photographs seized appear to span from the 1970s to early 2000s.
If anyone has information about this investigation, they are asked to call FDLE Orlando at 407.245.0888.
Noble is being held on a $50,000 bail in Vermont. He will face charges in Florida upon extradition.
