NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A parolee was arrested Thursday after probation officers found child pornography during a home inspection.

Bruce Hawkins, 53, reportedly had a video depicting a minor engaged in sexual activity on his computer inside his home in the 1900 block of Truett Avenue in Nashville.

The probation officer stated the video was of a nude girl around 12 years old with an adult male.

Hawkins allegedly told authorities he thought he had already deleted the videos from his computer.

The affidavit says Hawkins later denied knowing he had child pornography on his computer, but admitted to using specific search terms online to find it.

Hawkins was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor.

He is being held in the Metro jail on $76,000 bond.
