PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a 75-year-old convicted sex offender living in Wickenburg is in custody in a child pornography case.

Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say Gordon Dale Pryor has been booked into a Phoenix jail on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

They say Pryor is a former airline mechanic who’s a registered sex offender out of California.

Authorities say Pryor was convicted in 1988 for lewd and lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14.

He was arrested Thursday after a computer crimes investigation determined Pryor had been downloading hundreds of pornographic images of children.

It’s unclear if Pryor has a lawyer yet.
