Police have arrested a California man named Phoenix Sundown, in connection with sending child pornography to a minor who appeared on the show Dance Moms cast.

Sundown, authorities said, was taken into custody in San Diego Central Jail Tuesday in connection with sending explicit or obscene matter to a minor, according to online reports, after investigators linked him to five suspicious packages sent to the show's Pittsburgh home base of the Abby Lee Dance Company.

In addition to the child porn, WTAE reported that the 36-year-old Sundown included a blanket with an image of Elvis Presley on it, a blanket with tribal patterns, multiple letters, a coffee machine and a scrapbook in the packages addressed to a child dancer (who RadarOnline.com has decided not to name).

On social media, Sundown had tagged the target of his twisted affections with the hashtag "#lifegoals" attached to an image of prominent kidnapping victim Elizabeth Smart, according to online reports.

Sundown is also linked to a Youtube channel that features a disturbing compilation of clips, one of which shows him staring into the camera smoking a cigarette.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, postal officials at a Murrysville, Penn. post office intercepted and tagged the packages, which were eventually handled by the Allegheny County bomb squad, who dismantled the packages with a water cannon.

Postal inspector Tammy Mayle told the station that as result of the incident, authorities "are looking to have this individual prosecuted through the U.S. Attorney's Office."

Sundown will make his first court appearance in the incident Thursday.
