TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's deputies made a quick arrest of a suspected child pornographer.

On Friday, deputies arrested Earl Wayne Babin for electronic solicitation of a child, production of child porn and possession of child porn.

A complaint was made on Thursday, according to Lt. Andy Norris with the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office. By Friday, authorities had enough evidence to charge Babin and arrest him after he was questioned.

"All I can say is a complaint was referred by someone. We followed up on it. The evidence was there. We made the charges and placed Mr. Babin in jail," Lt. Norris said.

Norris says they've identified only one victim so far. He wouldn't say if the alleged victim is a boy or a girl.

On Monday afternoon, deputies also charged Babin with solicitation of prostitution.

Babin is being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on bonds totaling $111,000.
