  • Special Agent Stephen Emmett (404) 679-6451

ATLANTA—Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Lamkin announces the following arrest today at Columbus, Georgia:

Yancy Craft, aka Travis Mobley, 41 years of age, of Columbus, Georgia and formerly of Memphis, Tennessee, was taken into custody today, December 1, 2011, by FBI agents of the Columbus, Georgia Resident Agency after coming to the attention of undercover officers on the Internet as part of an interstate child pornography investigation. This investigation was initiated by the FBI Memphis Crimes Against Children Task Force but was transferred to the Columbus, Georgia area when it was learned that Craft, a pediatrician, had relocated to that area for an imminent job placement.

Craft is currently charged via federal criminal complaint for the possession and receipt of child pornography.

Craft will have his initial appearance in front of a U.S. Magistrate Judge in Columbus, Georgia later this afternoon.

The public should be reminded that the above are mere allegations and that all persons are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
