TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Tempe say they’re searching for a sexual exploitation suspect who cut off his ankle monitor.

Tempe police say 23-year-old Adam Leap was arrested last March after he allegedly sexually exploited children between ages 9 and 16 online.

The victims were in several different states and investigators fear there may be more.

Police say Leap posted $200,000 bond on Oct. 8 and then sliced his ankle monitor sometime after that.

He was last seen in west Phoenix, but police say Leap has ties to California.

Tempe police is working with the U.S. Marshals’ Violent Offenders Task Force to find Leap and take him back into custody.
