ABINGDON, Va. — A Buchanan County man has been charged in federal court with uploading child pornography to an online group.

According to court records, Jordan Seth Gross, 21, operated the group on the Kik messenger service. In November, he is accused of unknowingly inviting an undercover FBI employee to join the group.

During a subsequent investigation, the FBI uncovered six videos allegedly uploaded by Gross from a residence in Whitewood and from Buchanan General Hospital, where he was employed as a security guard.

Gross has now been indicted on a charge of sexual exploitation of minors. He is being held in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Abingdon.
