A 26-year old Albuquerque man is the latest in a string of Internet solicitation arrests by the Curry County Sheriff’s Office.
Matt Rish was arrested Tuesday, charged with five counts of child solicitation by electronic device, court records show.
He was released Wednesday on $25,000 bond, jail officials said.
Rish is accused of contacting a decoy chat room and soliciting solicited sexual acts from what he believed was a 13-year-old girl on five separate occasions.
Police said Rish also exposed himself via a webcam and sent numerous nude photos of himself to the decoy.
Several attempts to contact Rish for comment weren’t successful.
Police said at the time of his arrest, Rish was located at his place of employment and escorted back to his home where officers served a search warrant and seized two computers, a cell phone and electronic storage media for forensic analysis.
The sheriff’s department has made more than a dozen arrests since it started conducting undercover Internet investigations last year.
