A 20-year-old Antioch man confessed to using multiple apps to save, receive and view dozens of images and videos of young girls engaged in sexual acts, investigators say.
Jeremiah Nhothsiri was taken into custody Thursday on a charge of sexual exploitation of a minor.
According to an arrest affidavit, the Metro Nashville Police Department’s Sex Crime Unit received multiple National Center for Missing and Exploited Children CyberTips in March regarding Nhothsiri uploading sexual videos of minors to two Instagram accounts and also to a Dropbox account.
A search warrant was executed earlier this month at the suspect’s residence on Mountainhigh Drive in Antioch, the paperwork stated.
Metro police said a forensic examination of the suspect’s cell phone revealed more than 100 sexual images of children, including a large number involving toddler and elementary-aged girls engaged in sexual acts.
Sexual videos of minors were also recovered from the phone, investigators added.
The arrest affidavit stated Nhothsiri confessed to using multiple Instagram accounts to receive sexual images and videos of minors and admitted to using Dropbox accounts to save and view sexual images and videos of minors.
Bond for Nhothsiri was set at $80,000.
