Man arrested in Clearwater on 1,000 counts of child porn

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - Police say an eastern Kentucky man has been arrested in Florida on 1,000 counts of possessing child pornography.

Kentucky State Police in Ashland say 71-year-old James K. Raasch of Flatwoods was arrested Wednesday by officers in Clearwater, Florida.

Police said in a statement that they responded to a complaint that several child pornography images had been found at a home in Flatwoods. The statement says detectives found "several thousand images" at the residence and at storage units rented by Raasch.

Officers obtained a warrant for his arrest, determined he was in Florida, and contacted authorities there, who arrested him. Raasch had reportedly just moved to the Tampa Bay area.

It was unclear Thursday whether Raasch had an attorney.
