A Tucson man was arrested on Thursday, accused of sexual exploitation of a minor.

According to a news release from the Tucson Police Department, Richard Braun, 50, was booked into the Pima County Jail and faces five counts of the felony offense.

An investigation began in January with a tip regarding images relating to possible child sexual abuse uploaded to an online data storage website, the release said.

According to police, detectives with TPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Unit determined that the images allegedly had been uploaded from a residence in the 1500 block of West Greenlee.

The release says a search warrant was served on the house and investigators found child sexual abuse images on a computer there.

Braun, who police say is the sole resident of the house, was arrested at his place of business.
