PHOENIX -- A Phoenix grocery store clerk was arrested Thursday after authorities reportedly found hundreds of child pornography files on his computer.

Donald Joseph Turk, 33, faces 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a class two felony.

Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies served a search warrant at his home Thursday, where he lives with his parents, and reportedly found 644 files of child porn on his laptop.

The sheriff's office said the files, which were being publicly shared online, contained photos and videos of adults having sex with underage girls as young as 3 years old.

Turk allegedly admitted to needing professional help because he cannot stop viewing child porn and does not want to act on his desires, according to court documents.

He reportedly told deputies he has been viewing child porn for more than five years.
