TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- A Mesa man is in custody for allegedly sending an explicit photo to a 16-year-old girl online.
 
Tempe police say 22-year-old Joshua Vehmeier was arrested Wednesday at his home.
 
He's been booked into jail on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a minor and furnishing harmful items to a minor.
 
Police say Vehmeier allegedly contacted the girl Feb. 22 in response to an ad she posted on Craigslist advertising baby-sitting services.
 
They say Vehmeier sent the explicit photo during their email exchange.
 
Detectives learned through their investigation that Vehmeier knew the girl was a minor when he sent the photo.
 
Police served a search warrant at his home, where they seized his computer and other electronics.
 
They say a preliminary search of the computer uncovered several images of child pornography.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
