A photographer in Putnam County was arrested following a grand jury indictment charging him with sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators found more than 100 images and videos of child pornography in James “Punch” Parker's possession.

The 70-year-old works as a photographer in Bloomington Springs, about 75 miles east of Nashville.

The investigation began last December after some of the children Parker had photographed told their parents there were cameras in a room where they were asked to change for their photo shoots.

Parker was arrested following a traffic stop near his home Wednesday.

He was booked into the Putnam County jail on a $150,000 bond.
