LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man has been arrested after police say an online account linked to his residence was observed sharing child pornography.

According to an arrest report, the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crime Branch was conducting an undercover investigation when an Internet account originating from the home of 58-year-old Thomas F. Militello was observed sharing the files.

Police executed a search warrant at Militello's home on Juniper Forest Place, near Westport Road, on May 14. While there, police say they found "multiple files related to child sexual exploitation."

According to the arrest report, police previewed 11 of those files and determined that they were, in fact, examples of child pornography.
