LOS ANGELES – An American man accused of engaging in sex with under aged girls in Asia was arrested last week as he boarded a Philippine Airlines flight.
Federal agents arrested 64-year-old Ronald Carey Shirley at the Los Angeles International Airport.
The retired accountant has been accused of attempting to produce and receive child pornography.
Investigators claim Shirley was communicating on social media with at least three teenage girls in Asia, including one in the Philippines, whom he gave money to in exchange for sexually explicit images.
Authorities are still searching for other possible victims.
