Kinston man arrested on child porn charges

KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT)—A Kinston man is behind bars today after being arrested on child pornography charges.

57-year old Mark Anthony Mann was arrested Wednesday on child pornography charges. The arrest was made by members of the Kinston Department of Public Safety and Lenoir County Sheriff’s Department. It comes only days after Mann had been arrested on drug charges at a residence in Kinston along with three other individuals.

Mann’s latest arrest stemmed from the investigation of a cell phone taken by police during a traffic stop on June 15th, 2015. A search of the phone revealed multiple provocative images of children. He is now back in the Lenoir County Jail under a $150,000 secured bond, facing ten counts of Third Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor (Possession of Child Porn).
