HARNETT CO., NC (WWBT) -

A man captured on video sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl is now in federal custody in North Carolina.

Less than 24 hours after investigators released photos and asked the public for help identifying the man, the Harnett County Sheriff's Office says he is under arrest.

Homeland Security released several photos of the man, who they only knew as possibly going by the alias "Peter Gilbert." They described him as a white male, 40 to 50 years in age, with a medium to heavy build, possibly driving a white pickup.

The child pornography video was seized as part of an investigation into a Sanford, NC man convicted of sex crimes.
