FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A Florence man was arrested Thursday for allegedly possessing multiple images of child pornography.

According to a press release from Attorney General Alan Wilson, Bhupendra Khatri, 52, faces ten counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Investigators with the Florence County Sheriff’s Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which led them to the suspect, the release stated.
