LEE COUNTY, AL (WSFA) -

An Opelika man was arrested and charged Monday after investigators traced a cell phone containing child pornography back to him, according to the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were alerted to the situation when a citizen reported that they had found the phone at their home in Opelika and that it contained child pornography. Lee County investigators found evidence that connected the phone directly to Joshua Ryan Miller, 33. A warrant was issued and Miller was charged with three counts of production of obscene matter containing visual depictions of a person under 17 years of age.

A male child shown in the videos on the phone has been identified as a member of Miller's family. He is the only child depicted in the videos collected so far in the case.

Authorities report that it appears Miller recorded the images at his home. A search warrant executed at Miller's home revealed electronic devices that require forensic examination. Additional charges may be filed if more evidence is found. 

Miller is currently being held in the Lee County Detention Facility on a $76,000 bond.  

Anyone with information about this case should contact the Lee County Sheriff’s Office at 1-334-749-5651.
