A $5 million bond has been set in Kay County District Court for Steven Alford-Orecchio on a probable cause warrant filed by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.

An initial court appearance has been set for 9 a.m. May 18.

Alford-Orecchio was arrested Wednesday morning when members of the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant in Ponca City.

Task Force members received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children pertaining to the sexual exploitation of a child. An investigation revealed probable cause to obtain the search warrant.

Upon completion of the search and interviews, OSBI agents arrested Alford-Orecchio, 45, at his residence where the warrant was served.

Alford-Orecchio was arrested on one count of Sexual Battery of a Child Under the Age of 16 and he was booked into the Kay County Jail.

In addition to the OSBI, task force member agencies involved with this arrest were from the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, US Department of Homeland Security, Tulsa Police, Ponca City Police, and the District 8 Office of the District Attorney.

An affidavit in the case was filed under seal.
