Officers, on Wednesday, executed a search warrant at Kelley’s Cannon Road home and seized electronic devices.

Owens said those devices will be forensically tested and other charges are possible.

Kelley, after posting a $30,000 bond, was released from the Houston County Jail.

Court records do not indicate he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
