John Butorac was arrested at his home on Wednesday, Oct. 13, and is accused of 4 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Charges will be submitted to the Pinal County Attorney's Office.

"The Casa Grande Police Department was made aware of relevant information via a cyber tip generated through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

Items of evidence, including, computers, hard drives and cellular phones, were taken.
