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.
