DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

A man has been arrested in a Dougherty County Police investigation for 129 counts of sexual exploitation of children.

According to the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office, Steven Anthony Sanders, 28, was arrested by deputies around 5 p.m. on Monday.

Dougherty County Police charged him with 129 counts of sexual exploitation of children.

Captain Tom Jackson said Sanders was using Dropbox.

He said during Dropbox's security scan in October of 2016, they determined there were child pornographic images in his account. 

Dropbox then notified Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force which then notified the GBI and DCP. 

"These crimes exist out there," said Captain Jackson. "The thing about them is it's usually a buried, dark secret and it's usually something try to keep under wraps, but every now and then they do slip up and they come where they are visible like this."

Sanders is in the Dougherty County Jail.
