The Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Clayton County Police Department, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office busted three suspects—two of whom are from Clayton County—in a child online sexual exploitation sting.

The agencies executed eight search warrants during the operation.

Marcelo Mejia, 44, and Malik Marshay Lundy, 19, were arrested in Clayton County. Mejia is charged with five counts of sexual exploitation of children, while Lundy faces two counts on the same charge.

Chase Lee Glover, 25, was arrested in Coweta County and charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of children.

All suspects are considered innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law.

According to a GBI press release, each suspect was flagged by “separate reports made to the Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) regarding the possible upload and possession of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). Investigations related to all eight search warrant cases are still ongoing and may result in future arrests or additional charges. All cases are unrelated.”

Anyone with information about child exploitation is urged to call the GBI’s Child Exploitation and Computer Crimes Unit at (404) 270-8870 or (800) 597-TIPS (8477). You also can submit tips online through https://gbi.georgia.gov/submit-tips-online or the See Send app for Apple or Android.
