OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - An Omaha man previously arrested and then out on bail for two counts of child enticement in March was arrested Monday on new charges for child enticement and 26 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Douglas County Corrections website.

Adam Hawhee, 28, was being held as of Tuesday night without bond. He is also accused of lewd conduct and debauching a minor.

The Omaha Police Department reported Hawhee on Monday tried to coax a boy to his car near Cottonwood Elementary and Cottonwood Park, then Hawhee exposed himself. The boy ran to his father as Hawhee drove away, police said.

Hawhee was found at his home and arrested.

According to court records, Hawhee approached two 7-year old girls back on March 30 and asked them if they wanted a ride. Saying one was cute, he then asked if he could take their picture.

A witness said he took their picture as they walked away.

Similar incidents were reported to police on April 1.

Police then discovered similar crimes and similar situations were reported back in August 2013. That led them to Hawhee.
