TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Lowndes County man faces charges of exploitation of a child.

Sheriff Mike Arledge says authorities arrested Robert Alton Ming, 26, of Beck Drive in Columbus Wednesday.

Arledge says his office was notified by FBI officials about someone downloading child pornography.

Investigators acting on the information served a warrant a Ming's home and recovered a laptop computer, cell phones and other memory devices.

Arledge says Ming is currently on probation for a 2009 conviction of unlawful carnal knowledge of a juvenile in Louisiana.

Ming is currently being held in the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center.

Arledge says federal charges could be filed in the case.
