MARTIN COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) — A southern Indiana man has been arrested on child porn charges after police said he admitted to having some 250,000 images, as well as illegal ivory and stolen government ammunition.

At the home, the officer found “more child pornography,” according to state police.

A sheriff’s deputy then came to the home and found the amount of child porn at the home was “extensive,” a report said.
