— A 20-year-old Carthage man was charged Friday after authorities found him actively downloading child pornography in a Moore County home.

Mikey Ray Haga, of 340 Vernon Road, is charged with three counts each of felony second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. 

Investigators from the sheriff's offices in Moore and Randolph counties took Haga into custody on Thursday while executing a search warrant at a home in the Putnam community. Authorities found images of child pornography, and Haga was actively downloading the content when investigators arrived, officials said.

Moore County Sheriff Neil Godfrey said Friday that more charges could be filed against Haga.

Haga was in the Moore County jail Friday under a $50,000 secured bond. He will make a first court appearance in the case Feb. 11.
