Auburn man charged with possession, production of child pornography

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - An Auburn man was arrested following an investigation into the circulation of inappropriate images of a minor.

Andrew Benjamin Cantley, 24, was arrested April 16 and is charged with possession of child pornography. While incarcerated, Auburn police executed an arrest warrant for production of pornography with minors.

His arrest stems from an investigation that was filed on March 26, 2018, in reference to inappropriate photographic images of a female under the age of 17 being circulated and posted on a social media site.

Cantley was developed as a suspect and arrested on unrelated charges. Electronic and data storage devices that contained explicit images of an underage female were found in his possession.

Cantley was taken to the Lee County Jail and is being held on a $60,000 bond. The case remains under investigation and more charged are anticipated.
