Federal, county and city law enforcement officers arrested the pastor of Lake Highlands Baptist Church at his College Street office this morning. According to Hopkins County Sheriff's investigators, Chad Oather Calhoun, 31, was indicted by a federal grand jury last week on charges of possession of child pornography. Chief Sheriff's Investigator Lewis Tatum said the investigation began in early June of last year after the department's Internet Crimes Against Children deputies, working with other law enforcement agencies, followed up on information gathered by following up on Internet addresses and users downloading pornographic images of children. As the investigation began, deputies seized a number or computers that were subjected to forensic examination and the case was handed over to federal authorities. The federal indictment was returned on Thursday of last week and federal authorities were in Sulphur Springs this morning to take Calhoun into custody.
