An Auburn City Schools employee is facing multiple counts of producing pornography with minors after his arrest Tuesday by the Auburn Police Division.
David Barkely “Chip” Johnson, 58, was arrested and charged with five counts of production of pornography with minors after the Auburn Police Division received a complaint in reference to crimes possibly involving juvenile victims and began an investigation Feb. 5, police said.
After Johnson was developed as a suspect, pornographic images were recovered by police, and Johnson was determined to be the person who produced those images, police said.
The evidence indicated that the victims were known to Johnson, and the victims have been notified by police.
As of Wednesday, Johnson was listed as a maintenance supervisor for Auburn City Schools on the school system’s website.
Daniel Chesser, the public relations coordinator with Auburn City Schools, said the school system is cooperating with law enforcement officials in the investigation.
“At this time we do not have any indication that the arrest is related to the students or schools in our system,” Chesser said. “No further comment will be made available, due to the nature of matters related to personnel.”
The investigation is ongoing, and the Auburn Police Division is asking anyone with more information on the case to call their tip line at 334-246-1391 or the Detective Section at 334-501-3140.
