Google helped catch an Antioch man who allegedly had hundreds of sexual images involving children.

Google teamed up with officials from the Metro Nashville Police Department to help arrest the man who has since admitted to uploading all the images to his Google Drive.

Luis Gerardo Paredes has been charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.

Back in December, Google found inappropriate videos on his Google Drive account. They got police involved, and authorities obtained a search warrant and tracked him down using his phone number and IP Address.

That's when detectives made the discovery of hundreds of sexual pictures and videos involving children. Paredes admitted to using WhatsApp to receive all of the photos.

The District Attorney's office approved charging him with sexual exploitation of a minor, and he was booked into jail on a $100,000 bond.
