TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson man is under arrest for sexual exploitation of a minor.

Minnesota police obtained information that a 13-year-old girl was having an illicit online relationship that included the sharing of child pornography.

Gary Duane Keith, 67, pretended to be a teenager in the online conversations, police say.

The TPD Internet Crimes Against Children Unit served a search warrant at the suspect's residence on June 12 in the 4200 block of N. 1st Avenue.

Detectives found multiple videos depicting child pornography, as well as evidence of the suspect's communication with the 13 year old.

Keith is now in Pima County Jail for his involvement in the incident. He faces four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and further charges are pending.

Keith has assisted in a local church's youth ministry.

Police say they are concerned that there may be other victims.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
