An Ohio man was arrested in Albuquerque Wednesday after police said a repo woman found child pornography inside of his vehicle.

Police say 68-year-old Gary Seman's car was repossessed while he was in Albuquerque. While removing the personal property from the vehicle, a female employee discovered numerous pictures and videos depicting young girls in a sexual nature. She called police and told them where Seman was staying.

Detectives then located Seman at a hotel and arrested him.

During an interview, police said Seman "readily admitted" to downloading the child porn images from the Internet and also to ordering pornographic videos online.

As police walked him into jail Wednesday night, Seman told reporters, “it was a mistake,” and said he moved to Albuquerque to make a home for himself.

Detectives said there is no evidence he abused any children in New Mexico, but they want to hear from anyone who has information about Seman.

Seman is booked at the Metropolitan Detention Center on a charge of sexual exploitation of a child.

Police said Seman told them he had been arrested for a similar crime in another state.

Gary Seman was arrested Wednesday night.
