Officials arrested a 29-year-old man on several criminal charges after marijuana and photos of a young girl cultivating it were found at his home.

According to Navajo County Sheriff's Office, Randy Allen was arrested during a traffic stop conducted by Gila County Sheriff's Office after a search warrant was conducted at his home.

Allen was not home at the time, but detectives located drug paraphernalia, loose marijuana and marijuana in various stages of production.

Detectives also found photos on Allen's computer that showed a 5-year-old girl working with the marijuana.

The Department of Child Safety identified the child who was found to be Allen's sibling. She reportedly does not live with Allen.

Allen could be facing more charges, but a Grand Jury has already obtained indictments on eight criminal charges including narcotic sales and possession, marijuana possession and production, involving a minor in a drug offense and weapons misconduct.
