LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Barren County, Kentucky, man was arrested Friday after Kentucky State Police say he used a child for a "sexual performance."

According to a news release, 34-year-old Ralph W. Goss was arrested earlier today. Police say the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crimes Branch got a tip from investigators in Colorado that Goss had asked a minor for child pornography images.

A search warrant was executed at Goss' home today. Police say "equipment used to facilitate the crime" was seized by investigators for future examination.

Goss is charged with 20 counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and 20 counts of use of a minor (under 16) in a sexual performance.

He is currently being held at the Barren County Detention Center.

Additional charges are expected, according to Kentucky State Police.
