Date of Occurrence:            June 3, 2019
Suspect:                                Stevenson, Curtis Bradley, DOB/052278, Lodged Jackson County
On 060319 at approximately 1511 hours, the Talent Police Department responded to the Talent Middle School (TMS) regarding an adult male subject who had been located inside the girl’s locker room by staff.  The subject was no longer on scene but had spoken with school employees after being discovered and left school grounds upon request of school staff.  
After the subject left the school grounds, employees reviewed surveillance video.  They discovered the subject had been inside the school for approximately 1.5 hours.  He had been undetected as he had been inside the girl’s locker room for most of that timeframe.  
Working on information the school principal provided to the Talent Police Department, officers were able to identify Stevenson as the suspect in this case.  He is a registered sex-offender, who was currently out of compliance.
On 060319 at approximately 1740 hours, Stevenson was found at a residence/ranch in the 2400 Blk of N. Valley View Road in Ashland.   He was taken into custody without incident.   Officers located the stolen iPhone as well as clothing items believed to have been stolen from the school.  Additionally, drug paraphernalia, Methamphetamine and stolen items belonging to an individual in the 200 Blk of Pacific Hwy in Talent were located.
Since the date of arrest, Stevenson has been held at the Jackson County Jail on the following charges:  Burglary I, Burglary II, Failure to Register Sex Offender x 2, Identity Theft and Computer Crime
The Talent Police Department requested assistance from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) with conducting follow-up investigation on this matter, specifically searching cell phones seized from Stevenson.  Pursuant to a search warrant, investigators located images of at least 9 female students while they were in the locker room at TMS.  All the students were clothed.  The JCSO detective and school officials identified the majority of the female students and made contact with parents.
Stevenson has remained in jail since his arrest on June 3, 2019.  As the result of the follow-up investigation, Stevenson has been additionally charged with 9 counts of Attempting to Use a Child in a Display of Sexually Explicit Conduct.  Today, JCSO detectives also added charges of Encouraging Child Sex Abuse following an investigation unrelated to the Talent Middle School Case (JCSO Case # 18-10668 – separate media release will be issued by JCSO).
The Phoenix-Talent School District has partnered with the City of Talent Police Department and funded a part-time School Resource Officer (SRO) at Talent Middle School for the 2019/2020 school year.   Additionally, the School District continues to partner with local law enforcement agencies including Talent PD and JCSO on safety related issues on all their local campuses.
