Information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has led to the arrest of an admitted child pornographer in Lake Havasu City. A police investigation began September 15 when the agency reported a child porn image had been uploaded from a Lake Havasu City home.

The probe led to a Warm Springs Drive residence where 48-year-old Joel Cosmano reportedly admitted exchanging child pornography with others in an online chatroom. Police said Cosmano indicated he knew he had a problem and that he would be caught someday.

Police said dozens of images of young, naked females were found where stored by Cosmano. He was arrested for ten counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Police reports indicate that Cosmano was a foster dad to eleven young children. Police said detectives will follow up and attempt to locate and interview the kids.
