MORGAN COUNTY, Ala. – A Hanceville man is charged with production of child pornography.  Investigators say Philip Kevin Brown, 45, had evidence from a camera hidden in a teenager’s room.

Several agencies helped with the investigation, including the Morgan County Sheriff’s Special Victims Unit, Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, Morgan County Drug Task Force and the Internet Crimes Against Children’s Task Force.

According to Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin, investigators learned that a hidden camera was installed in a child’s room who was less than 17 years old.  The Cullman County Sheriff’s Office then obtained a search warrant for Mr. Brown’s home, and found evidence Brown was responsible for the production of child pornography.

Brown was arrested Thursday, October 13. He is being held in the Morgan County Jail on $60,000 bond.
