BRIDGEPORT, Ala. (AP) — Authorities in Alabama say a former police officer was arrested on child pornography charges.

Former Bridgeport Police Officer Geoffrey Gile Booth faces two counts of possessing pornography involving a minor.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Rocky Harnen says deputies responded to a call involving the 48-year-old and his wife on March 9.

Their complaint says they examined Booth’s phone and computers and found pornographic images of a minor.

He turned himself in on Thursday and was released within hours from the Jackson County jail on a bond of $5,000.

It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer to comment for him.
