GADSDEN, Ala. (WIAT) — Dennis Jerome Brown, Jr., 49, of Gadsden has been arrested and charged in connection to possession of child pornography. Brown was arrested on Thursday and has been charged with one count of possession of child pornography, says Investigator Randal Gilliland.

Back in January, Brown was taken into custody for a drug warrant. His computer had been seized as part of that investigation because he had allegedly been making narcotic transactions through it. That device is where investigators found evidence of child pornography.

“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…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.”  - Sheriff Todd Entrekin, Etowah County

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