TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A 63-year-old Tallahassee man has been arrested on child pornography charges after the Florida Department of Law Enforcement searched his home and found "numerous files" depicting young children.

On Friday, the FDLE agents arrested Earnest Terry Turnage, 63, on seven counts of possession of child pornography.

After receiving a cybertip from the National Centers for Missing and Exploited Children, agents executed a search warrant at Turnage’s home on Blountstown Highway with the help of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.

During the search, they found numerous files of child pornography which featured children as young as 3 years old.

Turnage was booked into the Leon County Jail. Agents said additional charges are dependent upon completion of forensic exams.
