A tip submitted to investigators has led to a Sullivan County man's indictment on child sex charges.

Joshua C. Wagner, 41, of Blountville is charged with 50 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a report from the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.

Capt. Andy Seabolt of the Sheriff's Office did confirm to News 5 that Wagner was involved in a youth sports organization in the Indian Springs community of Kingsport.

The information given to officers suggested Wagner was downloading child porn images via the internet at his home. A search warrant was secured and numerous electronic items were seized last week from Wagner's home, the report said. That evidence was then submitted to a Sullivan County grand jury.

Wagner was arrested Friday and then released after posting a $75,000 bond.
