Lincoln County man arrested on Child Pornography charges

Posted: Updated:
LINCOLNTON, NC (WBTV) -

A 26-year-old man has been hit with charges after deputies say they found child porn on computers in his home.

According to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office, detectives were notified last week by the FBI Cyber Crime Task Force in Charlotte about possible distribution of child pornography in eastern Lincoln County.

On Thursday, deputies went to a home along Quail Hunt Drive, in Stanley, where they found images and video of child pornography. Investigators seized three laptops, a Think Pad and an Iphone.  

The home belongs to 26-year-old Sebastian Alexander Morris.

Deputies say the investigation was initiated after an FBI undercover agent received the child pornographic images and video from Morris over the internet.

Detectives arrested Morris on four felony counts of Second Degree Sexual Exploit of a Minor/Distribute Material. 

He is in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $40,000 secured bond.

Investigation is continuing and additional charges may be forthcoming.
