30-year-old Joshua Lynn Cook of White Plains Church Road in Taylorsville has been arrested by Alexander Co. Sheriff’s Officers on seven counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

He was arrested after a search warrant was executed at his residence, which is across the street from the East Alexander Middle School, at about ten o’clock yesterday morning (June 4). Materials containing a visual representation of a minor between the age of six and 14 were found at the residence. Those materials were seized.

The F.B.I. assisted in the investigation. Additional charges are possible as the investigation continues.

Bond for Cook was set at $100,000, secured. A first appearance in District Court was set for today in Taylorsville.
