“He groomed and manipulated multiple child victims to send him sexually explicit photos and videos,” a news release from the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office said.

Police said the man also recently created a work profile as a child caregiver on care.com, but so far, there are no known face-to-face contacts between the man and any children.

Detectives served a search warrant at the man’s home in the 11600 block of 51st Drive SE Tuesday. Forensic detectives are going through evidence to pin down the number of children the man may have communicated with online.

The 22-year-old suspect was arrested during a traffic stop in Everett. He was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, viewing depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, cyberstalking and threats to bomb property.
