SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- A 19-year-old man was arrested Thursday in an investigation into the hacking of a webcam at the home of Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf in an attempt to extort nude photographs from Wolf, the FBI said.

Jared James Abrahams of Temecula, Calif., surrendered to agents at the FBI office in Orange County, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
He was scheduled to be in federal court in Santa Ana later in the day, Eimiller said.
Wolf, a 19-year-old graduate of Great Oak High School in Temecula, won the Miss Teen USA crown Aug. 9.
Last month, Wolf told the website of NBC's "Today" show that earlier this year she received an anonymous email in which the sender claimed to have stolen images from the camera on her home computer.

The sender of the email threatened to go public with images captured from Wolf's webcam unless she would provide nude pictures of herself, Eimiller said.
Instead, Wolf went to authorities.
Based on an investigation launched in March, the FBI believes there were more than a dozen victims from Riverside County, where Temecula is located, and beyond, Eimiller said last month.

Wolf has said she would use her fame to highlight cybercrime.
Wolf's mother recently told the Press-Enterprise of Riverside that her daughter was in New York, where she was planning to attend the New York Film Academy.
