A 48-year-old registered sex offender was arrested after child porn photos and videos were found in his home near 15th Avenue and Roosevelt.

Detectives from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant to Christopher Michael Regenold's apartment on Thursday morning.

They began investigating after getting information from Homeland Security agents in San Jose, Calif.

Phoenix police say Regenold is a registered sex offender who served a prison time for luring a minor for sexual exploitation in 2005.

He was arrested at work Thursday after task force detectives found several items of child pornography in his home.

Regenold allegedly admitted to having sexually exploitive pictures of minors and that he knew it was wrong.

In addition to the porn, police say they found letters between Regenold and women in Japan and the Philippines. In the letters, he allegedly asked them to come and visit him so he could learn their language and asked for pictures of their children. However, the pictures weren't pornographic.

Regenold was booked and charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Anyone with information concerning these crimes is encouraged to call the Internet Crimes Against Children Detail at 623-466-1828 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.
