LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested Thursday afternoon after police say an undercover investigation linked him to multiple examples of child pornography.

According to an arrest report, the investigation was conducted by the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crimes Branch.

Police say they determined that an online account linked to an apartment rented by 45-year-old Marcos Maiken was sharing child pornography files. A search warrant was executed at the apartment, shortly after 3 p.m. yesterday. The apartment was located on Debarr Street, near the corner of Baxter Avenue and East Broadway.

"As a result of the search warrant, multiple files related to child sexual exploitation were discovered," police say.

The officer who wrote out the report said that 20 files were previewed and determined to be examples of child pornography.

Maiken was arrested and charged with 20 counts of possession or viewing of matter portraying the sexual performance by a minor and eight counts of distribution of matter portraying the sexual performance by a minor.
