Joshua Silverton Biography Joshua Silverton Wiki
A Colorado Springs elementary school PE teacher Joshua Silverton was arrested Thursday as part of a month-long investigation into child s*x crimes.
Joshua Silverton, 34, a physical education teacher at Monterey Elementary School, was arrested early Thursday morning following a tip from the Colorado Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAIC), which reached out to the Durango Police Department on Monday.
Durango Police had carried out an undercover online operation for the past two months in which undercover law enforcement officers used the internet to speak to people interested in s*x with children. One of the people they came into contact with was Silverton, according to a Colorado Springs police press release.
Through the investigation, police learned that Silverton lived in Colorado Springs. At this point, Durango Police asked the Colorado Springs ICAC Task Force for help to continue their investigation. Search and arrest warrants were then issued against Silverton.
Colorado Springs police said Silverton was arrested Thursday and issued a search warrant for his home and work place.
