ARREST for child pornography

On Aug. 30, 2018 the Colbert County Sheriff's Office along with Homeland Security Agents, served a search warrant on a residence in Tuscumbia, which resulted in arrest warrants being issued for Shawn Orland Willis. The charges amounted to 2000 counts of Possession of Obscene Material containing the visual reproductions of persons under the age of 17. Shawn Orland Willis is being held at the Colbert County Jail on $250,000 bond.  These are serious charges and the involvement of children, in any aspect makes this even worse. I want to let the public know how tips and information can be sent whenever you think someone is involved in something like this. 

There are several helplines that can be called to report such problems.  Listed below are a few for your quick reference.
