A Flowery Branch man allegedly tried to “pin” child pornography on the Pinterest social media site, according to authorities.

Keith Prosser, 43, was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography Monday.

Pinterest notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Prosser “was attempting to ‘pin’ images of child porn,” Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes said.

“Pinning” involves saving items on the social media site to a page the user creates.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in turn told the Sheriff’s Office on Oct. 5.

“Investigators conducted a search warrant at the residence of Prosser and located a hard drive that contained images and videos of child porn,” Bailes wrote in an email.

A judge signed warrants on Nov. 4. Prosser was found Monday at a Cumming address.

Prosser was booked into the Hall County Jail, where he is being held with a $55,200 bond.
