BAGDAD, Ariz. -

A 40-year-old man was arrested on Feb. 11 in connection to two cases of sexually exploiting children.

Police say a woman caught her friend, Jeremy Barnette, in her 9-year-old daughter's room in the middle of the night, taking pictures of her naked.

Barnette allegedly took off the little girl's clothing and took pictures with his cell phone while she was trying to sleep on Jan. 15. Barnette fled the home.

A Yavapai County Sheriff's deputy found Barnette driving on State Route 89, but he denied doing anything to the little girl and told police he'd lost his cell phone earlier in the day.
He was released afterward.

Prescott Police Detective Joe Poulin continued to investigate and found Barnette was involved in a similar case in Yavapai County in 2004. The case lacked enough evidence to charge him at that time.    

Authorities served a search warrant on Barnette's home on Feb. 11 and found pornographic pictures of young children.  

They also found pictures that were linked to the 2004 case.  

Barnette was arrested and charged with seven counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Child.  

Detectives are continuing to investigate the original case.
