KINGMAN, Ariz. – A Kingman man is in custody for allegedly portraying
himself online as an underage girl and exchanging nude photos.
Mohave County Sheriff’s officials say 21-year-old Barry Wayne Neuenschwander
was arrested Thursday after a tip from a national organization.
The sheriff’s office says it received information regarding child pornography
from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Detectives found evidence of child porn during a search of his northwestern
Arizona home and Neuenschwander was taken into custody without incident.
The Arizona Republic says Neuenschwander is being held on suspicion of sexual
exploitation of a minor and luring a minor for sexual exploitation.
Sheriff’s officials didn’t know Friday whether Neuenschwander has a lawyer yet.
