Police arrest man on child pornography charges

CREATED May. 2, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Tucson Police arrested a 28-year-old man after a search warrant revealed child pornography images at his home.

Sgt. Chris Widmer with TPD tells KGUN9 that Michael Ray Hill was arrested and charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after an investigation turned up child pornography in his home.

In January, an online service provider notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone had used their services to upload child pornography.

TPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Unit investigated and went to Hill's home in the 9700 block of East Bennett Drive on May 2.

Widmer says police found at least three images of child pornography in the home. Investigators also learned that Hill had been communicating with underage boys online.

Detectives are trying to identify the victims. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
