Man arrested for child porn charges

A man facing several charges related to child pornography has been arrested.

According to Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway's office, the Anderson County Sheriff's Department arrested 55-year-old Mark Whitaker Wednesday, after deputies received a tip from the public.

On Monday, a grand jury indicted Whitaker on three felony counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

At that time, investigators did not know where Whitaker was.

The indictment followed a lengthy investigation by the Attorney General's Cybercrimes Unit.
