An Adams County resident is currently being detained at the county jail after being charged with three counts of possession of child pornography.
Alfred Roy Smith, 43, 7 Longmire Road, was arrested Monday and is being held on a $30,000 bond.
While several agencies within the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office spearheaded the investigation, details on the arrest are scarce.
Attorney General Jim Hood said in a statement multiple images of child pornography were found in the (Smith’s) home.
Each of Smith’s three possession charges carries a minimum of five years, and a maximum of 40 years, with the Mississippi Department of Corrections.
Adams County Sheriff Angie Brown said her deputies were asked to help execute search and arrest warrants at Smith’s home, but provided no further details.
