EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) -- A 60-year-old Emporia man has been arrested following a long investigation into obscene letters sent to more than 20 women.

Radio station KVOE reports (http://bit.ly/p3FyTR ) the man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of 47 counts of stalking and 47 counts of promoting obscenity. No charges had been filed as of Wednesday.

Authorities say the stalking investigation involved more than 20 women in Emporia and surrounding Lyon County. Some of the women began receiving the letters in late 2011.

The Kansas Bureau of Investigation worked with Emporia police and Lyon County deputies on the case. Investigators used video surveillance and handwriting samples to support a search warrant that led to the arrest.

Authorities are notifying victims of the arrest.
