CAMP VERDE -- Yavapai County Sheriff's Office detectives arrested 48-year-old Mark Bolding Saturday for three counts of sexual conduct with a minor and two counts of furnishing harmful items to a minor. Detectives had been involved in a three-day search for Bolding until he was finally located in a Camp Verde hotel room.

The prior week, detectives conducted an investigation into molestation incidents involving Bolding and a minor-aged girl that he knew.

The allegations included sexual contact with the victim during the summer of 2011 in the Camp Verde area. Bolding, of Cornville, was also accused of showing the victim pornographic videos.

Bolding was booked at the Camp Verde Detention on the charges and remains in-custody on a $75,000 bond.
