The State Police Electronic Crime Branch and Lexington Police arrested Andres Ortiz on Wednesday for charges related to possession and distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

Ortiz was arrested following an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation that involved multiple agencies.

Lexington Police said they started investigating after finding a suspect on the Internet sharing images of child sexual exploitation or what is commonly referred to as child pornography.

The investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant on Wednesday by State Police at Ortiz's apartment in Versailles in Woodford County.

Investigators said equipment used to possess child pornography was seized during the search and taken to the State Police forensic laboratory for examination.

The investigation is ongoing.
