ETOWAH COUNTY, Alabama -- A Gadsden man was arrested Tuesday on child pornography charges following an extensive investigation by several law enforcement agencies, the Etowah County Sheriff's Office said.

Pablo Gabriel Urbina, 20, was booked into the county detention center on two felony charges including possession of child pornography and production of obscene matter containing a visual depiction of a person under 17 years of age.

According to Sheriff Todd Entrekin, a search warrant was executed Tuesday night at Urbina's home on Merit Circle, and authorities found over 600 pornographic images and videos, some of which he allegedly distributed online.

Agencies assisting in the investigation include the sheriff's office, US Secret Service Electronic Crimes Task Force, Department of Homeland Security Investigations and the Etowah County District Attorney's Office.

“The exploitation of children will not be tolerated in this community,” District Attorney Jimmie Harp said.

Entrekin expressed similar sentiment as Harp, saying, "We will continue to pursue those who take part in disgusting behavior of this nature."

Urbina is currently remains in jail on a $250,000 cash bond.
