A 42-year-old Rossville, Ga. man was swept up in a Georgia Bureau of Investigation round up cracking down on people trading child pornography.

Richard Ellis Ford, a fast food worker, was arrested after investigators executed 24 search warrants in 16 counties.

Officials say the roundup, Operation Secret Guardian, began in July. A total of 69 digital devices were examined and 232 devices were seized. As a result, 18 arrests were made using the Computer Pornography and Child Exploitation Prevention Act of 2007.
