A Tucson man suspected in a child-porn case has been arrested, police said.

Kurt Quimby, 32, was arrested Thursday at his place of employment after police executing a search warrant on his apartment in the 2400 block of South Mission Road south of West Silverlake Road, found "evidence related to the sexual exploitation of a minor and commercial exploitation of a minor," Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release.

In April, 2012, GoDaddy.com, a Web hosting company, became aware someone had used their services to create a child pornography site, Widmer said. "The site was advertising the sale and distribution of child pornography."

This information was turned over to the Tucson Police Department, which worked with the Oro Valley Police Department on the investigation.

Quimby was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and two counts of commercial sexual exploitation of a minor.

The police investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information about Quimby should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
