HARRISBURG — A Poinsett County man is being held on a $100,000 bond following a joint investigation into his possible possession and distribution of child porn.

Along with Jonesboro’s Internet Crimes Against Children Division, the Poinsett County Sheriff’s Office busted Gary Mann, 64, of Harrisburg, on April 1 for “sharing hundreds of sexually explicit photos and videos of children as young as 12 (years old),” JPD announced Monday.

The files were found during a warrant search at his residence, the department disclosed on Facebook. ICAC’s “undisclosed investigation” is ongoing, public information specialist Sally Smith told The Sun on Tuesday.

Poinsett County District Court Judge Ron Hunter found probable cause Monday to charge Mann with one count of distributing, possessing or viewing of matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, documents show.

As part of his pretrial release, Mann “may not possess any computer or electronic device capable of accessing internet. (The defendant) may not use (the) internet,” a hearing document read. His next court appearance is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. May 28 at the Poinsett County Courthouse, 401 Market St., Harrisburg.

Because another suspect is sought in JPD’s ongoing investigation, an incident report was not provided to The Sun, Smith said.

“If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison per … illegal image,” JPD’s online announcement read.

As of Tuesday afternoon, Mann remained detained at the Poinsett County Detention Center.

Smith encourages Northeast Arkansans to submit tips regarding Mann’s alleged misconduct or any internet crimes to 870-935-5657. CrimeStoppers of Jonesboro is also receiving tips at 870-935-7867. The tips would be forwarded to investigators with the ICAC division, she said.
