An initial investigation started in December when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children tagged a photo indicative of child pornography, Dothan Police Lt. Scott Owens said, and tipped off the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

It determined the photo was being sent or received in Dothan and contacted Dothan police, who tracked down the I.P. address to a computer in the 2300 block of Denton Road.

A search warrant was served at Dempster’s home on Jan. 28. Officers seized multiple electronic devices, and through forensic analysis, discovered many images depicting obscene matter.

Dempster’s bonds total $450,000.
