QUEEN CREEK, AZ - A Queen Creek man has been arrested following an investigation into sexual exploitation of minors.
Jacob C. Black, 18, was booked into the Pinal County Jail after his arrest at his parents' home on Wednesday.
Authorities say detectives with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at a home near Ocotillo and Ironwood roads on Wednesday.
During the investigation, Black was arrested after admitting he owned a computer which was used to download images showing the sexual exploitation of minors.
Investigators believe there are hundreds of illegal images of underage children on Black’s laptop, authorities said.
The images and videos showed children from 5 to 13 years of age.
"I just can't believe it. My little girl plays at his house all the time," said neighbor Deanna Jensen.
Black was booked for 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
