Man arrested for possessing images, videos of incest, child sexual exploitation

MESQUITE, Nevada – A registered sex offender is in police custody Wednesday after police reportedly located numerous images and videos depicting incest and the sexual exploitation of children on his computer.

The Mesquite Police Department’s Investigative Services Division assisted Nevada Parole and Probation in conducting the Feb. 18 investigation which involved searching several computers and electronic devices belonging to a Mesquite resident and registered sex offender currently on supervised parole, the Mesquite Nevada Police Department said in a press statement issued Wednesday.

The computers contained numerous images and videos depicting incest and the sexual exploitation of children,” the statement said.

After the discovery, police took 71-year-old Timothy Lairby into custody. He is being held at the Clark County Detention Center.

According to the statement, the Mesquite Police Department has initiated a new criminal investigation into multiple felony charges relating to the possession of presentations depicting the sexual exploitation of children.

“At this time, the Mesquite Police Department does not have any evidence that local children are involved or are victims,” the statement said.

Lairby will remain in custody until the criminal investigation is complete, the statement said, at which point the Mesquite Police Department said it anticipates filing the new charges.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    If he’s the guy on Facebook (and it looks like an old Army combat vet picture matching this guy’s age), he has a LOT of friends in his “circle”.
