LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man faces more than a dozen charges, as police accuse him of trying to seek minors for sex.

Almo Harding, 39, was arrested April 19 in Louisville on a warrant out of Franklin County.

Harding was indicted by a grand jury on April 10 in Franklin County on the following charges: six felony counts of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor to engage in sexual or other prohibited activities, and nine misdemeanor counts of distributing obscene matter.

"Over the last 28 months, our Cyber Crimes Unit has removed a record number of child predators from Kentucky communities," Attorney General Andy Beshear said in a press release. "Because of their work, our children are safer. I appreciate the investigators in my office and LMPD for working so hard to keep our communities safe."

Harding is being held on a $50,000 bond.
