A Troy man is being charged with possession of child pornography after investigators say he had explicit online contact with a juvenile female.

Douglas Edward Hale, 37, is being charged with one count of possession of child pornography according to Troy Police Chief Jimmy Ennis. The Troy Police Department was contacted by the FBI

According to police an investigation and a subsequent investigation were conducted which compiled enough evidence to develop probable cause and search Hale's computer.

Detectives made contact with Hale at his residence, off of U.S. 231 North, searched his computer  and showed him to be in possession of the child pornography.

Hale was taken to the Pike County Jail with a $25,000 bond. He will be held at the Pike County Jail pending a bond revocation hearing on a prior pending charge of sexual abuse first.

This case is still being investigated at this time and no additional details are being released.
