KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Federal investigators believe there could be more victims of child molestation in the Kansas City area after a second man was charged as part of an international child pornography ring.
Homeland Security Investigations special agent Gary Hartwig says the arrest of Michael Arnett, 38, in May prompted others to come forward and accuse Robert Poe III, 38, of molesting them.
Poe was arrested Aug. 10 in Laredo, Texas, on three counts of traveling to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. Prosecutors say Poe was a close friend of Arnett, who is facing federal charges of making, possessing and distributing child pornography.
A phone message left for Poe's attorney over the Labor Day weekend weren't immediately returned.
