BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Etowah County Sheriff's Office says they have arrested a Gadsden man on one count of possession of child pornography.

49-year-old Dennis Jerome Brown Jr. was taken into custody on Thursday. The Sheriff's Office says Brown was arrested on drug warrants after making narcotics transactions on the computer in his residence. Evidence of child pornography was found on the computer after it was seized in January.

"This is a terrible crime that has been committed against children, who at this time, have not been identified. We do not need these types of individuals on the streets of our county," Sheriff Entrekin said. "I am proud of our investigators for the work they did in this case. We have some of the toughest sex offender laws in the nation and I anticipate their use against this predator."

Brown is currently being detained in the Etowah County Detention Center on $30,000 cash bond.
