A Ketchikan man was arraigned in Ketchikan Superior Court Thursday on charges of sexual abuse and exploitation of a minor.

On February 9th, 25-year-old Andy W. Cameron, Jr., was arrested after police obtained a search warrant, and allegedly found numerous images and videos depicting child pornography on his cell phone. Cameron was arraigned the next day in Ketchikan District Court and charged with 12 counts of possession of child pornography, a Class C felony.

In a press release issued that day, police stated the investigation was ongoing and additional charges pending.
