A North Carolina man is now facing several charges after allegedly created videos of himself performing sexual acts with animals and began selling them online.
42-year-old Timothy Lewis Blackmon was arrested on Thursday in Winston-Salem after an investigation.
Authorities say began investigating Blackmon after receiving a tip about a man using an app on his phone to sell the videos.
Detectives say they issued a search warrant for Blackmon’s home and where they discovered the videos.
Two dogs were seized from the home by Animal Services Division deputies and have since been placed in protective custody.
Blackmon has been arrested and taken to the Forsyth County Law Enforcement Detention Center where he is facing animal cruelty charges.
More charges are pending.
