— Search warrants released Tuesday in a Cary child porn case outline how police identified and lured a suspect from Durham into a sting operation.

A search of the computer of Joseph Azada, of 4709 Hoppers Drive in Durham, showed someone used the computer to communicate  online from April 29 to July 9  with a person believed to be a 14-year-old girl.

Azada arranged a meeting with the girl on July 9, the warrants say. Cary police met him at the rendezvous point, 200 Grand Heights Drive, and arrested him. They found a pornographic DVD, an open condom and a laptop in his car.

Azada, a nurse's aide who has no record of previous arrests., was charged with attempting to commit indecent liberties with a child, dissemination of obscenity to a minor and soliciting a child to commit sex acts by computer. He was released from jail on a $50,000 bond.
