Traffic stop leads to child porn arrest

Local

A man in a car stopped by a DPS trooper near West on Wednesday remains in the McLennan County Jail on other charges.

DPS spokesman Sgt D.L. Wilson says that after the traffic stop, the trooper reported a male passenger began acting what he described as “suspiciously”.

A consent to search his cell phone was obtained with the trooper locating what were believed to be nude photos of a minor female.

James Cody, whose jail records indicate is a resident of Gatesville but who is from Fort Payne, Alabama, was arrested and booked into the jail on charges of possession of child pornography.
