PHOENIX (CBS5) -

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says the "Jane Doe" they've been searching for who produced child pornography has been arrested at her home in Los Angeles.

ICE spokeswoman Amber Cargile said ICE Homeland Security Investigations in LA received five tips on the identity of Jane Doe after the case received national coverage.

Cargile said Letha Mae Montemayor, 52, was taken into custody without incident in North Hills about 7:30 p.m. Thursday by special agents with ICE.

Cargile said she is believed to have produced at least one long-form child pornography video that she and a 4- to 5-year-old victim are part of.

The case began when Danish National Police contacted ICE about a video discovered in Denmark. The material was also sent to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Cargile said Montemayor's arrest came less than 10 hours after ICE released photographs of Montemayor with an unidentified man known only as "John Doe" in connection with the child sexual exploitation case.

Montemayor is charged with a one count of production of child pornography and is expected to make her initial appearance in federal court Friday afternoon.

The identities and whereabouts of John Doe and the victim are still unknown.

The Jane Doe criminal complaint and arrest warrant is the second one received by Homeland Security Investigations' Child Exploitation Investigations Unit in 2012. The first Jane Doe was arrested with her husband in Portland, OR, in September.
