A Hobbs man was arrested Thursday on six counts of sexual exploitation of children.

In December, a Hobbs police officer was contacted by an anonymous source concerning teen pornography. The source had a flash drive with photos and had information that the same photos and more pornography were located at a residence in the 900 Block of West Sunrise Circle in Hobbs.

Officers and detectives obtained a search warrant for the residence of Carl B. Heacock, 33, and found multiple images of teens as well as photos of a 13-year-old Hobbs teen. Heacock admitted to having sex with the teen and was arrested for criminal sexual penetration.

Heacock faces five counts of 2nd degree felonies and one count is a 4th degree felony. Heacock is being held at the Hobbs City Jail on a $255,000 bond.
