A 47-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in connection to an online child porn investigation police have been working on for 10 months.

Tucson police said Mitchell Beiro is accused of sharing pictures of children being sexually abused on peer-to-peer Internet networks.

officers started investigating in December 2011 and said they were eventually able to find a computer in the Tucson area that was sharing photos of children being sexually abused.

Detectives traced the location to a computer in the 2900 block of West Pincushion Lane.

Officers got a search warrant on Wednesday and while they were searching Beiro's home, they found electronics containing thousands of files that showed children being sexually exploited.

Beiro was booked for 15 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Detectives said Beiro was involved in an unreported child molestation case in California.

Beiro is employed as a security guard at a Tucson security company.

Tucson police said they are worried other unreported cases in both Tucson and Southern California.

Anyone with information about unreported cases of sexual misconduct involving Beiro call 88-CRIME.
