LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a Louisville man accused of sharing images of child pornography online and trying to meet someone he thought was an underage girl for sex. 

According to court documents, police arrested 43-year-old Steven Beauchamp late Tuesday night after an undercover sting investigation. During the operation, police say Beauchamp sent an LMPD detective posing as a 14-year-old girl "pictures of prepubescent females involved in sex acts."

Police say Beauchamp was arrested at a McDonald's in the 6700 block of Dixie Highway when he showed up to meet the girl he thought he was talking to but was met by police instead. 

Beauchamp is charged with prohibited use of electronic communications to procure a minor or peace officer for sex and distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. 

Beauchamp is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $50,000 cash bond.
