FRANKLIN, Ind. – A Franklin man has been arrested on dozens of child pornography charges.

Indiana State Police say 26-year-old Tyler Bartnovsky is facing 25 counts of possession of child porn, one count of child solicitation, and one count of sexual misconduct with a minor.

Police say the charges stem from a two-month investigation led by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The investigation began when officers received a tip.

Bartnovsky was taken into custody based on information discovered during the investigation and a subsequent search warrant. The Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office will make a final charging decision.
