DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - A Dothan man has been arrested on over 60 child porn charges after a five month Dothan Police investigation.

Christopher Dwayne Johnson, 39, was arrested after a raid of his East Main Street home last week.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided a tip to the Alabama Internet Crimes against Children Task Force back in June.

Dothan Police investigators spent five months building the case before making the arrest.

Multiple electronic devices were taken from Johnson’s home.

“The Dothan Police Department is very committed to the safety and well-being to all of the children in our community and we know that children are one of the most vulnerable population types in the city and we are very committed to making sure that our community is safe and we are not going to let people exploit our children,” Lt. Scott Owens, Dothan Police Department, said.

Johnson’s bond is over one million dollars.

Lieutenant Owens said the images discovered were not local children.
