Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

               

 

                Sheriff Jimmy Harris states that on September 2, 2015, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Investigators and Homeland Security Investigators went to the home of Frank DeWayne Kelley, 46, of Ider. Homeland Security IT division had suspicion that Kelley had been sending and receiving pornographic material of children. After investigators spoke with Kelley, they received consent to search his residence and computers located inside the home. He was found to be in possession of thousands of videos and images of child porn. Kelley was arrested and he is currently being held at the DeKalb County Detention Center with a $75,000 bond. Federal charges are pending and are likely to be brought down in the next couple of weeks.

                Sheriff Harris states “These types of cases are always disturbing for our investigators. We are thankful we have such a good working relationship with Homeland Security and other agencies to help bring cases like these to a close. No further information will be released due to an ongoing investigation.”
