Update on Arrest

A Summerville man was arrested late last month on eighty-three counts of possession of child pornography.  Twenty-nine-year-old Justin Tyler Adams was taken into custody after the GBI tipped off local law enforcement about the child porn which led to an investigation of Adams.

Adams worked at a clean-up shop on Bellah Avenue in Summerville, contrary to initial information released by law enforcement, he was not the owner of the business.  Adams did use space at the business.  He did not own the business.

Adams lives a short distance from the clean-up shop on Oak Street in Summerville.  Law enforcement seized his cell phone and personal computer, after the tip from the GBI, and found multiple sexual pictures of children on the devices, according to sheriff’s department investigators.
