KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Federal investigators believe there could be more victims of child molestation in the Kansas City area after a second man was charged as part of an international child pornography ring.

Homeland Security Investigations special agent Gary Hartwig says the arrest of 38-year-old Michael Arnett in May prompted others to come forward and accuse 38-year-old Robert Poe III of molesting them.

Poe was arrested Aug. 10 in Laredo, Texas, on three counts of traveling to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity. Prosecutors say Poe was a close friend of Arnett, who is facing federal charges of making, possessing and distributing child pornography.

A phone message left for Poe's attorney over the Labor Day weekend weren't immediately returned.
