A 27-year old Plaza Midwood man is charged with five felony counts of exploitation of a minor after police said he knowingly gave and tried to receive pornography from a minor.

Jason Reid, who lives off Umstead Street, was communicating with this minor from his home. CMPD said this happened on Nov. 20 and Reid was arrested on Nov. 25.

CMPD did not say whether or not the arrest was part of any sort of sting operation. Reid posted bail on a $250,000 bond and is awaiting court.
