Roswell Man Arrested on Child Porn Charges

ROSWELL, GA -- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has charged a Roswell resident with possession of child pornography.

Mark Twain Heaton III, 38, of Alpine Drive was arrested on Thursday, Jan. 27 after numerous images of child porn were found on his computer. Heaton has been a registered sex offender in Georgia since his 2002 conviction of child molestation in Fulton County.

The arrest was the result of a search warrant executed by the GBI's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the Roswell Police Department.

The warrant was obtained with help from the Liberty County Sheriff's Office, which is also part of the ICAC Task Force. The sheriff's office engaged in peer-to-peer sharing of child porn images from a computer at Heaton's house; officers presented this evidence to the GBI on Tuesday, Jan. 25.
