A Bradley County man was arrested for possessing and distributing child pornography over the Internet, officials say.

Jerry Ray Tyler, Jr. was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor and aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor, according to Bradley County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Bob Gault.

A month-long investigation by the sheriff’s office’s Internet Crimes Against Children Unit led detectives to search Tyler’s home on Holly Brook Circle, Gault said. Detectives searched the residence Aug. 29 and seized two computer hard drives with hundreds of child pornography images, Gault said.

Tyler was arrested on Sept. 2 and now is in Bradley County Jail on a $300,000 bond, Gault said. He is scheduled in General Sessions Court on Sept. 13.
