From Staff Reports Daily Times
Blount County authorities have charged a 23-year-old Greenback man with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, following a search warrant on the man's computer, Sheriff James Berrong said today.

Derrick Brandon Burchfield, 23, of Cedar Church Lane, Greenback, is being held in the Blount County Detention Facility in lieu of a $25,000 bond pending a hearing in Blount County General Sessions Court at 9 a.m. June 18.
Investigators with the HEAT (Hi-Tech Evidence and Technology) Unit, along with the Harriman Police Department and the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office — as part of Internet Crimes Against Children Tennessee Task Force (ICAC) — have been conducting an investigation on Burchfield for the last few weeks, officials said.

Tuesday, investigators with all three agencies conducted a search warrant at Burchfield’s residence and seized his computer.

The hard drive of the computer revealed several video images of child pornography.

Burchfield was charged this afternoon.
