A Georgia pediatrician faces federal child pornography charges after getting rounded up in an multi-state sting.

Yancy Craft, also known as Travis Mobley, was arrested by FBI agents in Columbus Georgia on Dec. 1 "after coming to the attention of undercover officers on the Internet," according to an FBI press release.

The case against the 41-year-old doctor began in Memphis, Tenn., where Craft once resided. When Craft moved to Columbus for a new job posting, the investigation followed.

He has been charged with possession and receipt of child pornography.

A U.S. Magistrate judge released the suspect on recognizance bond on Thursday afternoon, but required him to wear a monitoring bracelet, and barred him from having unsupervised contact with minors, possessing a firearm, and leaving his home between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m., The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.
