Gary Bruce Sewell

61-year-old Gary Bruce Sewell, held in Lamar County Jail for violation of parole, has also been charged with possession of child pornography following a multi-agency investigation, authorities said. 

Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, Paris Police Department and Crimes Against Children detectives conducted a multi-agency investigation Friday in reference to child pornography. The investigation originated from a tip investigators received Wednesday, Oct. 2, authorities said. A search warrant was obtained for a Paris residence to search and seize computers and electronic equipment used to store and view media; at the time the search warrant was executed, the suspect, Sewell, was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant of violation of parole, authorities said. 

Upon further investigation, a warrant was issued Monday for possession of child pornography and was served while Sewell was in Lamar County Jail. Bond has been set at $100,000. The investigation is ongoing.
