A Mesa man is facing sexual exploitation charges after a police investigation found him posting on a Russian child pornography website.

Police said U.S. Homeland Security began investigating Michael Dean Ross after he started posting using the user ID of "BONEHARDER" on a Russian file sharing site know to be used to trade child porn.

On March 1, a search warrant was executed at Ross' home after he admitted to receiving child porn via his email account.

According to the criminal report, a DVD disc was found in his bedroom with approximately 97 images of a child. Police said there were images taken when a child appeared to be sleeping in Ross' bedroom.

Ross was arrested Thursday on ten counts of sexual exploitation and one count of voyeurism. Police said they expect additional charges.
