Police detectives early Wednesday charged a 46-year-old man with four counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, saying in arrest warrants that he had nude photos of a 16-year-old girl.
Michael Anthony Sheridan of 1112 S. Person St. in Raleigh was arrested at detective headquarters on Atlantic Avenue, records show.
The arrest warrants do not say where police believed the photos were taken or how they knew about the incident.
They did not make clear whether police said that Sheridan took the photos himself or persuaded the girl to take them.
The warrants said the photos showed frontal nudity.
Sheridan was ordered held on $500,000 bail and was due for a court appearance later Wednesday.
