A 45-year-old Cypress man was arrested today on suspicion of soliciting teenage girls for sex online and possession of child pornography.

Michael Theodore Mordaunt, who works in information technology in Seal Beach, was pulled over after shortly after pulling away from his home about 6:50 a.m., Garden Grove police Lt. Ben Stauffer said.

Mordaunt also was booked on suspicion of child annoyance and possession of child pornography, Stauffer said.

"It was certainly a concern among forensics guys that they might have their work cut out for them," given Mordaunt's profession, Stauffer said.

Investigators searched Mordaunt's home in Cypress and his Seal Beach office, Stauffer said.

Anyone with more information about Mordaunt was asked to call police at (714) 741-5836.
