A Gulfport man under investigation in a child molestation complaint was found with pornographic images of sexually explicit acts with a child, police said.
Patrol officers had responded to a complaint of molestation on March 28, which is when a police detective began investigating, Sgt. Clayton Fulks said.
Police arrested Edward Lionel Gilman, 30, on Thursday. He faces charges of touching a child for lustful purposes and possession of child pornography.
The victim is a child he knows, Fulks said, but declined to give the child's sex and age.
Gilman was booked at the Harrison County jail on bonds that total $150,000.
Judge Brandon Ladner set bond on the touching charge at $100,000.
Judge Melvin Ray later set a $50,000 bond on the child porn charge.
