GALLATIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — A grand jury has indicted a Sumner County man on multiple counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 62-year-old Drexel Cleveland is accused of uploading and receiving multiple images of child pornography through an online application.

Agents launched an investigation after getting a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

On December 3, the Sumner County Grand Jury indicted him on 14 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and three counts of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor. He was arrested Tuesday and booked on a $150,000 bond.
