DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - A tip made in April about a Dothan man led to his eventual arrest on child pornography possession charges, according to the Dothan Police Department. On Thursday police identified the suspect as Michael Kenneth Millwater and confirmed he'd been arrested and charged.

Dothan police had been working the tip for months after an initial investigation identified Millwater as the suspect.

In June investigators conducted a search warrant of Millwater's residence in the 1200 block of Circleview Drive. Authorities collected electronic devices that police said "could have been used to store child pornography."

After viewing the content of the devices, police determined Millwater was in possession of "obscene matter" in the form of pictures and videos that depicted minors involved in obscene acts.

Millwater faces 34 counts of possession of obscene matter and one count of production of obscene matter.

He is currently in the Dothan City Jail under bonds totaling $570,000.
