A man has been arrested for the sexual exploitation of a minor after a video was discovered on his social media.

An investigation began June 19 after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a cyber tip from Instagram.

The social media site reported someone using the account _j_swag_money2_ uploaded a sexual video of a minor female on May 7. The video reportedly depicted a 10-year-old girl.

Police got a search warrant for the IP address connected to video, and that led to the arrest of 19-year-old Jeremiah Nhothsiri on September 6.

Nhothsiri admitted during an interview with officials he used that account and uploaded the sexual video to his Instagram profile. He claimed he got the video from someone named David in May 2017.

Authorities said they also reviewed his Dropbox account and found more than 50 additional images.
