GPD makes child exploitation arrest

Press release from Gainesville Police Department

Gainesville, Fla. – On Thursday, June 23, 2022, the Gainesville Police Department (GPD) Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Division, with the assistance of GPD SWAT, served a search warrant at 2306 NW 65th Place. The investigation was prompted after GPD received a Cyber Tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC). The Cyber Tip indicated that a Facebook user shared a video of child sexual abuse material (CSAM) through their messaging platform.

Further investigation by Gainesville Police Department Detective Montague revealed that the video was shared from the residence of 2310 NW 65th Place where Quincie Grube (DOB: 11/09/1997) previously lived.

Grube was contacted at her residence and interviewed by Detective Montague. Grube confirmed the Facebook account in question as her own and recalled that it was recently banned. When a description of the CSAM video was read, Grube recalled receiving, later requesting and then sharing the video described. The video of CSAM which prompted this investigation is of a pre-pubescent child being raped. Grube denied being sexually attracted to minors and denied viewing/soliciting child sexual abuse material outside of this incident. Grube stated that she is a “people pleaser” and when her friend requested a child sexual abuse video, she wanted to find and send him one.

Grube was arrested for distribution of child exploitation material and solicitation of child exploitation material.

The Gainesville Police Department wants parents to be aware that children are being solicited and exploited through social networking applications. These social networking applications, like Facebook, KiK, Snapchat, TikTok and Tagged are also used to share images and videos which depict young children being sexually abused. Please be vigilant and aware of any social networking platforms your children may access.
