Lesson of the day: Social media is a good way to connect with friends but a bad way to share child porn.
The Tucson police department says a local swim coach was arrested after uploading images of child pornography to a social media site.
The TPD didn't reveal which website but says it got the tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
In the Internet age, tracking down who's posting child porn on a social-media website isn't exactly tough police work.
The search warrant was served at 49-year-old Mountain View High School (the Tucson one) swim coach Bruce Rock's house.
Police weren't detailed on the explanation, but they say evidence recovered in the home identified Rock as the one who was doing the uploading of the child porn.
Rock also runs the Pima Aquatic Club, a year-round swim team for youngsters.
According to the club's website, Rock is married and has two college-aged children. Yikes.
TPD says Rock was booked into jail on five counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
