Jessamine county man arrested for child porn

JESSAMINE CO. Ky, (WKYT) - State police searched a Jessamine county home Tuesday, in connection to a child sexual exploitation case.

Jeffery Treadway was arrested and charged Tuesday afternoon, with 20 counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

The arrest is a result of an undercover internet crimes against children investigation that began in Colorado. An FBI agent in Colorado was operating an account belonging to another individual, arrested on similar charges. The FBI agent used the suspects account to contact others who could be interested in the sexual exploitation of children, leading to Treadway.

Police seized electronic equipment from Treadway's home. Police say their investigation is ongoing. They expect to file more charges in the future.
