CHAMBERS COUNTY,  AL (WTVM) - Authorities in Chambers County tell News Leader 9 a man faces 43 counts of possession of child pornography.

Jeremy May, a convicted sex offender, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Valley, Alabama after they were tipped off to a domestic dispute between May and his mother. but deputies found more than they expected. 

After searching around the property of his mother's home and a mobile home, investigators found a meth lab and a brief case containing several images of child pornography.

More than 200 images, files and pornographic material were found on a thumbdrive. Officers tells us that most of the pictures were found in the brief case. Among other things found was a collection of women's underwear.

"He had actually produced it, he had taken photographs from the Internet and actually some pictures of some people that he knew and recreated his own pornography," Rollins said.  

Chambers County investigators tell us that May is a registered sex offender.

Chambers County Investigator Sergeant Shannon Rollins says catching people like May will hopefully make the community safe.

"We can catch the folks who are using it then maybe we can track back the folks who are producing it because they are the ones who are hurting kids and that are what we are trying to do protect the kids," Rollins said.  

In our initial web story we said we met a woman who claimed she was the suspect's "step-mother".  We now know that the woman was actually May's biological mother and we're sorry for any confusion.
