Lauderdale County man arrested in child porn bust


A Lauderdale County man is behind bars after investigators say they found nearly 150 images of child porn on his computer.

Investigators said they received a tip about the images after someone saw them while using the man's computer.

David Erick Gray, 31, was arrested and faces 150 counts of possession of child pornography. Additional charges are pending. He is being held on a $750,000 bond.

A desktop computer, laptop computer, table and hard drives were removed from the home by investigators. They said preliminary results of their search showed nearly 150 images of young teens and children involved in sexual acts.

Police don't believe the children in the photographs are from this area but are images downloaded from the Internet.

They say these cases are often the hardest to investigate.

"It's very disturbing," said Cliff Billingsley of the Florence Police Department. "These are very had cases for an investigator to work. It's something we don't look forward to working.

"There's kids out there - even if it's in this community or any other community - there's kids out there being exploited by someone with sick problems."
