72-year-old John Brown Ramsey, Jr. of Manchester was arrested last week on 33 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
Manchester Police Investigator Butch Stewart served warrants several weeks ago on Ramsey to take his computer to send it to the TBI for testing.
According to the indictments, Ramsey possessed the pornographic material. The TBI checked Ramsey's computer and allegedly found images that "included minors engaged in sexual activity or simulated sexual activity" on the computer.
Manchester Police Chief Investigator Billy Butler says that they do not think any of the children shown on the computer images were local.
Ramsey of Kingwood Apartments on the McMinnville Highway was booked into the Coffee County Jail last week on the charges. He was released after posting a bond of $50,000.
Ramsey is scheduled to appear in Coffee County Circuit Court May 6.
