MARION COUNTY, AR (KAIT) – A Pocahontas man is behind bars after police say he sent pornographic pictures of himself to undercover police posing as 14-year-old girls.

According to the Marion County Sheriff's Department, 57-year-old Mickie Bush contacted and engaged in sexually explicit chats, and sent pornographic pictures of himself to what he believed was two different 14-year-old girls.

The girls were actually undercover police from the Marion County Sheriff's Department, and the Flippin Police Department.

Bush is charged with two counts of computer child pornography and two counts of unlawful use of a communications device. He is currently in the Randolph County Jail on a $100,000 bond.

Bush will be extradited to Marion County and is set to appear before a judge on June 27.
