Phoenix school library worker arrested in sex case

PHOENIX — Authorities say a man who works in a Phoenix elementary school
library has been arrested in a child pornography case.

Phoenix police say 27-year-old Travis Scott Kinkaid-Mata is being held on 10
counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

He was taken into custody Tuesday at Longview Elementary School, which is in
the Osborn School District.

Police investigators reported finding more than a dozen images of child
pornography downloaded on Kinkaid-Mata’s computer and cellphone at his home in
Buckeye.

Authorities say they were alerted about Kinkaid-Mata’s actions after receiving
a cybertip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding
images of child pornography being uploaded.

The school said it has no knowledge of student involvement in the photos. Officials are cooperating with police.

At his initial court appearance Wednesday, bond was set at $25,000.

Kinkaid-Mata doesn’t have an attorney yet.
