The search yielded enough evidence to charge Garrett Hunter Allen, 18, with five counts of possession of obscene material depicting someone younger than 17.

Allen was booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail, where his bond was set at $50,000 -- $10,000 for each charge.

Nothing further was available Thursday as the task force continues to investigate the case.
