Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Mark Turberville, 54, of 1344 Gavin Road, Bonifay on 20 counts of possession of child pornography.
FDLE agents initiated an investigation in April 2019 when child pornography activity was identified on the internet. Yesterday the FDLE Pensacola Cyber Squad and the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at Turberville’s residence. While on scene, computer forensic examiners conducted forensic previews on a computer belonging to Tuberville and located 20 images containing child pornography. These images depicted children between three and 11 years old.
Turberville was arrested yesterday and booked into the Holmes County Jail. Additional charges are dependent upon completion of forensic exams. The Office of the State Attorney, 14th Judicial Circuit will prosecute this case.
