BIG LAKE, TX (KWES) - A Big Lake man is behind bars after authorities executed a search warrant on a man's home.

According to the Office of the Texas Attorney General, Alan Keith Stout, 47 of Big Lake, was arrested for two counts of possession of child pornography.

According to the report, the Attorney General's Child Exploitation Unit investigator received a tip from the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children that reported a web site containing child pornography was being hosted via an IP address that resolved to Stout's home and place of business.

After executing a search warrant, investigators found numerous images of child pornography on Stout's laptop computer.

Authorities said Stout later confessed to downloading and possessing the images.

Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, said in the release, "My office will remain steadfast in protecting our children and our communities from the heinous acts of these child predators and continue to seek justice against them."
