CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ala. — A former Centre police officer was arrested and charged with several counts of possession of child pornography.
According to Cherokee County Sheriff's Office jail records, 29-year-old Aaron Flynt was booked Thursday, March 9 shortly before 4:30 p.m. after Cedar Bluff Police made an arrest as a result of an investigation that has been ongoing since August 30, 2022.
Flynt was charged with 25 counts of possession of child pornography. He bonded out of jail in less than 24 hours, being released just after 2:30 p.m. on Friday, March 10.
Cedar Bluff Police investigators were issued a tip from an Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force, on a subject in possession of child pornography. On October 21, 2022, a search warrant was executed at a residence on Old Highway 9 in Cedar Bluff and upon completion of the search warrant for all electronic devices, several items were located. The electronic devices used to view and save images from the internet were taken as evidence by Cedar Bluff Police.
The Centre Police Department said Flynt was sworn into the department in 2019 and worked there for about two years. Flynt is no longer involved with law enforcement.
The investigation remains ongoing, and more charges may be filed. Police Chief Brody Moses would like to thank all of the officers, and investigators, for their outstanding work on the case.
