Man arrest on child porn charge

Sheriff's investigators have arrested Richard Matthew Berry, 37, of Pascagoula, on a charge of possession of child pornography, Sheriff Mike Byrd said this morning.

Deputies assigned to Jackson County's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force made the arrest after serving a search warrant at Perry's home and seizing a computer that contained sexually-explicit images of children, authorities said.
