A 63-year-old man suspected of trading sexually explicit materials of underage children was arrested at his Kent home Thursday, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Authorities received a tip in January that the man was trading photographs and videos of young girls from 6 to 17-years-old.

The State Patrol’s Missing and Exploited Children’s Task Force found the images online and tracked them to the man’s computer on 46th Avenue South in Kent.

They served a search warrant Thursday and seized multiple child pornographic images.

The man has not yet been charged.

There is no evidence the man molested or had any direct contact with children, the WSP reported.
