PRESCOTT - A 38-year-old man was arrested Wednesday, June 10, after an investigation of a "cyber tip" to police determined he was in possession of child pornography, a Prescott Police spokeswoman said.

Jared L. Harman was charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and may face further charges, Lt. Amy Bonney said.

The tip came through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and suggested "suspicious activity" involving a social media account of Harman's, Bonney said.

Police served a search warrant on Harman's residence and seized evidence, which included "several images of child pornography," Bonney said.

Harman was booked into the Camp Verde jail on a $20,000 bond.
