FOUNTAIN HILLS – An employee at a local drug store has been indicted on 10 counts on sexual exploitation of a minor after questionable photos were discovered in the store’s photo kiosk.
Michael Brown, 49, and employee at a CVS store in Fountain Hills, was taken into custody when another employee found photographs of young girls in various stages of undress while fixing the self-service photo kiosk.
A news release from Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley says the photographs were allegedly in the kiosk printer queue under Brown’s name.
Romley says, “Children are so trusting and vulnerable and, unfortunately, these traits often make them easy to exploit. This office takes crimes against children extremely seriously and we will continue to prosecute these cases vigorously.”
The report also states that Brown allegedly had hundreds of photos of girls under the age of 13 who appeared either naked or semi-naked.
Each count of sexual exploitation of a minor is a class 2 felony and is considered by the court as a dangerous crime against children.
