BREAKING NEWS: Thomaston Man Arrested for Child Pornography

ZEBULON - Pike County Sheriff’s Office investigators have arrested Kenneth Lee Trice, 36 years of age, for possession of child pornography. This arrest concludes a two month long investigation into the activities of Trice.

He is a former resident of Pike County and currently lives in Thomaston. A search warrant was conducted at his current residence, 319 East Gordon Street, yesterday in an effort to recover any further electronic evidence.

As of now, over forty thousand illicit images have been recovered during this investigation.

An initial bond has been denied by the Pike County Superior Court for Trice.

Additional charges are possible as new evidence is sorted through from the search warrant that was served today.

The assistance received from the National Center for Exploited and Missing Children, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and Thomaston Police Department was much appreciated during this investigation.

Update 12.1.21

Pike County Times was advised that the case started here while Trice was living in Pike County.

The Pike County Sheriff's Office also advised that investigators will be conducting additional search warrants on electronic devices that were recovered from the residence yesterday.

UPDATE 12.8.21

Major Neal advised Pike County Times that the search on one electronic device has been completed at this time. This device had another 1,000 images of child porn.

Additional charges are pending.

There are several other searches of electronic devices that need to be conducted in this case.
