Phoenix school library worker arrested in sex case

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - 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.

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

Kinkaid-Mata doesn't have an attorney yet.
