Tucson man arrested on sexual exploitation of a minor charges

TUCSON - A joint investigation between Tucson Police and Police in Rochester, Minnesota, leads to the arrest of a 67-year-old man suspected of having an online relationship with a 13-year-old girl that included sharing child pornography.

TPD says Rochester Police started the investigation of 67-year-old Gary Duane Keith of Tucson after determining he was portraying himself as a young teen.

Wednesday, TPD's Internet Crimes Against Children's Task Force served a search warrant at the suspect's residence in the 4200 block of North First Avenue.

During the search, detectives found multiple videos containing child pornography. They also obtained evidence of the suspect's communication with the young girl in Minnesota.

67-year old Gary Duane Keith was arrested and booked into the Pima County Jail for 4 counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. Further charges are pending at this time.

Detectives say Keith assisted in youth ministry at a local church here in Tucson. The Tucson Police Department is concerned he may have had inappropriate contact with other juveniles.

Anyone with information is urged to contact 911 or 88-CRIME.
