PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Northern Arizona authorities say a Cornville man has been arrested in a child pornography case.
The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office conducted a joint operation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations and that led to the arrest of 48-year-old Troy Lee Curtis.
Authorities say a search warrant was served at the Curtis' home and they seized a computer and associated data storage cards and devices that contained several hundred apparent child pornography images and at least 13 video files.
They say Curtis admitted downloading and storing child porn and he's been booked into jail on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
He was being held Tuesday on a $20,000 bond. Authorities didn't immediately know whether Curtis has a lawyer yet.
