The FBI, SBI and local police arrested a Havelock man who is a registered sex offender on child pornography charges.
Brian VanCourt is charged with ten counts of second degree sexual exploitation of a minor after the FBI Cyber Crime Task Force and others searched his McCotter Boulevard residence Tuesday afternoon.
The 38-year-old VanCourt went before a Craven County magistrate who set his bond at $1,005,000. Police say the investigation is continuing.
The state's sex offender registry says VanCourt was convicted in 2009 in another state.
