Killen man charged with possession of child porn

KILLEN, AL (WAFF) -

A Killen man is behind bars, charged with 150 counts of child pornography.

31-year-old David Gray was arrested while at work, after a week-long investigation by Florence Police that was launched by a tip.

"Somebody called and said they were going through his computer and saw what they thought was child porn," said Keith Johnson, lead investigator with Florence Police. "I got a search warrant for the house and for all of his computers and seized them Thursday."

Johnson said a preliminary scan found over 150 images. Investigators said he could face more charges if more images turn up during forensic analysis. A desktop computer, a laptop, a tablet, and nine hard drives are being analyzed.

It is currently unclear if Gray distributed or produced any of the images. Investigators do not believe any of the photos put local children at risk. They said the images appear to be downloads.

Gray is being held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center.
