A Mesa man on probation for a sex offense is in custody after violating terms of the probation by having contact with a young family member and keeping pornographic materials in his home.
According to court documents, 33-year-old Aaron Peeples was not permitted to have contact with minors, but family members hid the child from probation officers when they visited the residence.
Peeples' residence near Guadalupe and Power roads was searched and pornographic magazines and other material were reportedly found in a locked room.
Peeples reportedly admitted that the materials were his and that he looked at pornography on the Internet.
He also admitted to running his own business on Craigslist, in spite of being prohibited from Internet use.
Police recommended Peeples remain in custody because he lives just four houses away from an elementary school and family members were hiding the fact that he had contact with a minor family member.
Peeples was charged with three counts of probation violation.
