‘Softball coach’ facing child pornography charge
A Muldrow man facing child pornography charges remained in the Sequoyah County Detention Center Thursday. No bond has been set.
Ryan Offineer, 41, described as a coach for a traveling girls' softball team, was arrested on charges of possession of child pornography and procurement of child pornography after a search warrant was served at Offineer's Muldrow home.
The warrant was served by members of the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office (TCSO)Task Force Deputies assigned to Homeland Security Investigations, Sequoyah County Deputies, Muldrow police and the District 27 Task Force.
The arrest was the culmination of a months long investigation by the Tulsa authorities, who had been looking into purchases Offineer allegedly made on a website used to sell images of child pornography, according to information released by the TCSO Task Force.
Officers said items of child porn were found during the search of Offineer's home. Those images were of young teenaged girls.
Offineer is described as a coach of a traveling girls' softball team in the Muldrow area. The team is not associated with Muldrow Schools, and Offineer is not an employee of the school system. He is believed to be an employee of a car dealership.
Investigators said they worry Offineer may have preyed on girls he had contact with. They are asking any victims to come forward and call Homeland Security Investigations or TCSO at 918-596-5601.
Authorities said the Tulsa Police Department's Cybercrimes Unit also assisted in the investigation.
“Thank you to Tulsa County S.O. and Homeland Security for helping get this predator off the streets of Sequoyah County,” Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane said. “If anyone in the Muldrow area has any further information on him, please contact us or the Tulsa county Cybercrimes Unit.”
