John Shearer

A Sierra Vista man has been arrested in suspicion of child-sex crimes, police say.

John Shearer, 34, was arrested on two counts of sexual conduct with a minor child, child molestation, and furnishing harmful items to a minor child, said Sgt. Brian Sebastian, a spokesman for the Sierra Vista Police Department.

He was being held at the Cochise County jail on a $10,000 bond, as well as a $50,000 bond for an unrelated second-degree burglary charge, Sebastian said in news release Monday.

Shearer was arrested Friday as he walked along Fry Boulevard, he said.
