PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Attorney General's office says three men, including two who worked with children, have been indicated on child sex exploitation charges.

The office said Friday that those indicted include Vincent Ciliberti, a football coach and teacher at Mountain Ridge High School in Glendale, and Mico Alejandro Cano, a childcare coordinator at Paradise Valley Unified School District. The third person has been identified as Dakota Reaney.

It was not immediately known if the men had attorneys.

The indictments spring from an online undercover investigation by the Mesa and Tempe police departments and Homeland Security Investigations in cooperation with state officials

Investigators who carried out the operation in late January and early February 2019 targeted people suspected of using the internet to lure children for sexual exploitation.
