Henry, who neighbors called "Paw Paw" lived in Fuller Mobile Home Park when authorities arrived and searched his residence on February 5.

Authorities with the Lanett Police Department, Chambers County Sheriff's Department, and Alabama Bureau of Investigation reported finding children's underwear in the home as well as pornographic magazines and videos. Also found were 346 child porn images and 4 child porn videos.

Following the search, Henry was arrested and transported to the Chambers County Detention Facility. He is being held without bond until he back be taken before a judge.
