The land of child pornography possession is no longer an exclusive boys’ club, at least as far as the Tucson Police Department is concerned.

TPD announced Thursday the arrest of Carolina Portugal, whom it believes is the first woman the department has ever investigated for possession of child pornography.

Portugal, 27, had been under investigation by TPD since 2007, at which time police found images depicting sexual abuse of a minor in her Tucson home, according to a TPD news release. She was indicted that year, and had arranged through an attorney to surrender to authorities, but instead fled to Mexico.

That ended Monday when, after negotiating with Portugal’s attorney, U.S. Marshals were able to take her into custody at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Portugal, who was booked on five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, is now the in the Pima County Jail.
