A cybertip from the N.C. Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force led to the arrest of a Mocksville man on Wednesday night.

The Davie County Sheriff’s Office received the tip that child sexual abuse materials were being distributed from 541 Ben Anderson Road.

At 7:30 that evening, sheriff’s deputies and detectives served a search warrant on the residencer, and seized 13 electronic devices.

Mark Andrew Rosensteel, 62, was charged with two counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. He was taken into custody in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

“The investigation is continuing, and more criminal charges are anticipated,” said Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Brian Jacobs.
