ST MARTIN, MS (WLOX) - Jackson County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on Thursday for allegedly tapping into his employer's internet connection to download child pornography.

Sheriff Mike Byrd said Talmadge Jace Wells, 32, worked at a moving company in St. Martin. When deputies showed up at the business with a search warrant, they discovered information that pointed to Wells.

Investigators believe the Biloxi man used his personal iPod and laptop computer to access the company's wireless internet service and download the porn.

Deputies then got a second warrant to search Wells' home on Bienville Drive in Biloxi.

Talmadge Wells is charged with one count of child pornography. He's being held at the Jackson County Adult Detention Center pending an initial appearance. He faces anywhere from five to 40 years in prison, if found guilty.
