TALLAPOOSA COUNTY, AL (WTVM) – After a three-month, multi-state investigation, a Georgia man has been arrested on child pornography charges.

On Friday, July 28, The Tallapoosa County Sheriff’s Department in charge of the investigation assisted the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia Department of Pardons and Parole, and the Heard County, Georgia Sheriff’s Department conducting a search in Franklin, Georgia.
