Associated Press - June 11, 2010 5:54 AM ET

OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. (AP) - The Board of Aldermen has terminate Ocean Springs police Lt. Steven Futral, who was arrested this week on four counts of possession of child pornography.

City officials announced their decision Thursday after meeting in executive session.

Jackson County deputies first arrested the 44-year-old Futral on Monday night after searching his home and seizing his personal computer. He got out of jail Tuesday on a $50,000 bond but was arrested again Wednesday on three additional counts of possession of child pornography. That arrest followed a forensic examination of files on his police computer.

The Sun Herald reports Futral is being held in the George County jail on a bond of $150,000 on the last three charges.

It was not immediately known whether Futral has an attorney.
