A Yuma man has been arrested on suspicion of several sordid sex crimes after a month-long investigation by the Yuma County Sheriff's Office.
Cody Slaughter, 22, of Somerton, is suspected of molesting a 2-year-old girl eight years ago, and having sexual contact with a pig, dog and horse, according to a sheriff's office spokesman.
The sheriff's office was originally contacted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection about possible criminal activity that was discovered during a pre-employment screening with Slaughter.
Deputies interviewed Slaughter and he admitted he told the Border Patrol of his past.
YCSO investigators served a warrant at Slaughter's home in Somerton and found evidence linking him to the molestation and supporting his admission of bestiality from 2004 to now.
He was booked into the Yuma County Jail on one count of sexual conduct with a minor and three counts of bestiality.
Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to call the Yuma County Sheriff's Office at 928-783-4427.
