HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A former information technology employee of the Madison County Sheriff’s Office has been arrested after authorities say they stumbled upon child pornography on his old work computer.

Sheriff Blake Dorning says in a news release 36-year-old Jonathan Sheldon was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of possession of child pornography.

Authorities say Sheldon had left his job with the sheriff’s office several weeks ago for another job.

Following his departure, Capt. Michael Salomonsky says investigators were conducting an unrelated internal affairs investigation when they found the pornography on Sheldon’s old work computer.

It is unclear whether Sheldon has an attorney.
