TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Police arrested a swimming coach at Mountain View High School on child porn charges after an investigation by the Tucson Police Department.

Sgt. Chris Widmer from TPD tells KGUN9 that Bruce Rock, 49, was arrested after an investigation showed he was uploading child porn to a social media site.

Widmer says the investigation began after TPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Unit received a tip.

An investigation showed the photos were uploaded by someone in a home in the 8200 block of North Willow Blossom Drive. A search warrant was served there Thursday and detectives found evidence implicating Rock.

Widmer says Rock is a swimming coach at Mountain View High School. He also owns and operates the Pima Aquatic Club, that rents pool time to Marana High School.

He was booked into the Pima County jail on five counts of the sexual exploitation of a minor.
