Police have made a big arrest overnight involving child pornography.

The bust happened at a home on Truett Drive.

The suspect, Bruce Hawkins, is in custody. Hawkins is a registered sex offender and is classified as violent on the TBI's registry.

The 53-year-old was just booked into the Metro jail on one charge of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Hawkins' probation officer allegedly found a video of a 12-year-old girl on Hawkins' computer during a regular check of his home.

Hawkins allegedly told the officer he thought he'd deleted the video from his computer, then later denied knowing the video was there at all.
