PRESCOTT, AZ — A Prescott man was found in possession of meth and child porn according to the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office (YCSO).

YCSO reported that their deputies served a search warrant to the Prescott home of Michael Egbert, 34, after receiving a tip about child pornography being shared online. Prescott police detectives assisted YCSO in tracking the internet address to Egbert's house.

In the home, deputies say they found 15 grams of methamphetamines and various inappropriate pictures of female children. They also allegedly found a video "portraying sexual activity involving underage girls with adult men."

Egbert is being held on a $150,000 bond for possession of child pornography and drug charges.
