MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – The Madison County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man recently in a child pornography investigation.
Deputies served a search warrant at 107 Compass Drive in Madison on Friday, January 24.
They arrested Paul Gebhardtsbauer, who lives there, and charged him with possession of child pornography. His bond was set at $30,000.
Sgt. Brian Chaffin says it appears Gebhardtsbauer has been involved with child pornography since 1985. Deputies seized computer equipment and will analyze it. More charges could follow, because they suspect the computer contains 600 to 800 child porn images.
Investigator say it doesn’t appear at this time there are any local victims. It’s believed all illegal images were collected from the Internet.
