They arrested 54-year-old Kevin Martin at the home.

Martin is the 46th arrest made since Operation Glasshouse launched in 2010.

Martin is charged with four Class X counts of distribution of child pornography, four additional Class 1 counts of distribution of child pornography, three Class 2 counts of possession of child pornography, and one Class 3 count of possession of child pornography.

Martin was held in the Knox County Jail with bond set at $500,000.
