SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Police said they arrested a 27-year-old San Diego man for profiting off revenge porn websites, which hosted 10,170 pictures of nude women alongside their names.

Authorities arrested Kevin Christopher Bollaert on Tuesday and charged him with felony extortion, conspiracy and identity theft.

"This website published intimate photos of unsuspecting victims and turned their public humiliation and betrayal into a commodity with the potential to devastate lives," Attorney General Kamala Harris said in a statement.

Bollaert is charged with 31 felony counts and has been released on bail.

Bollaert allegedly created the website ugotposted.com, which was set up for anonymous men to post photos of women.

The photos were likely taken with permission when the pair were dating, but then used as a method of revenge after the couple broke up.

The photos often linked to the victims' Facebook pages and were posted with the women's full address and age.

On Bollaert's second website, changemyreputation.com, he offered to remove the photos for a fee of between $300 and $500.

The complaint states that Bollaert earned about $900 per month off the second website.

In a separate case, Bollaert has pleaded guilty to giving a false home address while purchasing 31 firearms.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 17 on the firearms charge.
