LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Authorities have arrested a Louisville man they say was in possession of thousands of child pornography images and videos, and wanted to "trade" pictures of a family member online.

According to an arrest report, 44-year-old Jeremy Summarell posted non-nude "exploitive" pictures of his family member online, and stated that he was wanting to "trade" them.

When authorities searched his devices, they allegedly found "thousands of photos and videos depicting minors engaged in a sexual performance." Some girls in the photos and videos were as young as toddlers, according to the arrest report. Summarell allegedly told investigators that he would engage in sex acts while viewing the photos and videos of underage girls.

According to the arrest report, Summarell admitted to taking photos of his family member while she was in his apartment in the 10000 block of Southgate Manor Drive, near the intersection of Preston Highway and Mud Lane. He allegedly admitted to posting those photos online "for trading."

Authorities say the photos of his niece did not show her nude, but were "exploitive in nature." 

The age of his family member is not provided in the report.

Summarell was arrested by the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General Wednesday morning and charged with several counts of possession or viewing of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. He is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
