Attorney General Jack Conway announced Wednesday the arrest of a Frankfort man for possession of child pornography.
Investigators from General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit arrested 45-year-old Edward L. Lewis on Tuesday on four counts of possession of matter portraying the sexual performance by a minor, a Class D felony.
The charges against Lewis stem from an undercover investigation that began in June 2012. Conway's Cybercrimes investigators arrested Lewis after executing a search warrant at his residence Tuesday, where they say they found 3,000 suspected child pornographic images and videos.
Lewis is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Franklin District Court. He is being held in the Franklin County Regional Jail on a $40,000 full cash bond.
