ANDALUSIA, Ala. (WSFA) - The Covington County Sheriff’s Office arrested a local EMS worker on child pornography charges Tuesday.

Lance Chandler Hundley, 22, of Andalusia is charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

The sheriff’s office says the investigation began in November 2020 through a collaborative effort with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Program. A Covington County investigator developed Hundley as a person of interest in downloading child pornography after he moved to the area from Ohio.

Investigators say they found hundreds of explicit images depicting children. In a news release, the sheriff’s office called the images “heartbreaking.”

Hundley was taken into custody without incident then booked into the Covington County Jail with a $300,000 bond.

“I’m pleased with how the investigation was conducted and its outcome. This type of investigation will make you question the morality of some people. The mere idea of manufacturing, distributing and/or possessing child pornography is horrific,” Sheriff Blake Turman said in the release. “We are dedicated to identifying and investigating those involved. Mr. Hundley is innocent until proven guilty and the dedicated men and women of the District Attorney’s Office will seek justice through due process.”
