INDIANAPOLIS -- Police say a tip led them to a Pendleton man now facing 36 felony charges for child pornography and human trafficking of a minor.

Jeffrey Kramer, 48, was arrested Thursday evening on one count of promotion of human trafficking of a minor, five counts of child exploitation and 30 counts of possession of child pornography – all felony charges.
