During the past month, Detectives from the Highland Sheriff’s Station
were using social media as part of an un-related investigation. During that
investigation, they posed as a 15 year old female juvenile on a social media
McCullough contacted the juvenile decoy on the social media
website, and solicited a sexual relationship. McCullough asked the age of the
female juvenile, and he was informed that the juvenile was 15 years old.
McCullough then sent a nude picture of his genitals to the person whom he
thought was a 15 year old female juvenile. As the conversation continued, a
decoy officer contacted McCullough and acted like a 15 year old juvenile. That
conversation continued with McCullough asking the juvenile to meet with him, so
they could have sex.
On June 5, 2014, a pre-designated location in Whittier was
discussed between McCullough and the decoy officer, where McCullough agreed to
pick up the juvenile in his diesel truck, and allow the juvenile to run away
with him for several days.
Detectives then drove to the location, where McCullough arrived
and attempted to meet with the juvenile; where he was detained by officers. At
the time of his arrest, he was also found to be in possession of a “loaded”
hypodermic syringe, a glass meth pipe, and a bag of methamphetamine.
Anyone with information about this investigation, or other
inappropriate contact by McCullough, should contact the Highland Detective
Division at (909)425-9793.
McCullough was arrested and booked into Central Detention Center
in San Bernardino; where he is being held in lieu of $1,000,000.00 bail.
