On Wednesday, August 21st, 2013, Carl Dahn, age 31, of Bergman, Arkansas, was arrested for Computer Child Pornography (Class B Felony) and Internet Stalking of a Child (Class A Felony). The arrest is the result of an ongoing undercover online investigation. Dahn had made contact and engaged in sexually explicit chats and sent pornographic images of his self, via internet and cell phone, with who he believed was a 14 year old girl, which in fact was an undercover investigator from the Marion County Sheriff's Department.

Dahn’s bond was set at $25,000.00 and is currently awaiting his first appearance before the Marion County Circuit Court.
