Children forced to dance for adults, and offered hundreds of dollars for sex. Those are the allegations in a Harnett County child exploitation case.

SANFORD, N.C. -- A day care and mentoring program operating out of the house of a convicted sex offender turned out to be a front for a child porn operation, that's according to the Harnett County Sheriff's Office.

Monday, Investigators arrested four people in connection with the operation but were looking for an unidentified fifth person.

Tuesday morning, deputies confirmed to WRAL that they have arrested the person and identified him as Tommy Wall. Wall was arrested after authorities released photos of him Monday. The images were from a video of him having sex with an adult woman. Investigators told WRAL there is another video of him committing a hands-on sexual act with a child.

Investigators say Bailey Joe Mills, 33, ran the operation out of his former house in Sanford located on Nicole Drive. According to WRAL the operation involved 10 male and female victims ranging between the ages of 1 to 14 and dates back to 2013.
