A man was arrested on a manufacturing child pornography complaint in Muenster, Texas, on Thursday.

Bobby Jerry Orrell, 79, allegedly captured nude photos of a juvenile during a trip to a secluded fishing spot at Mill Creek near Ravia, Oklahoma, on June 6.

Both Orrell and the juvenile reportedly took their clothes off and the 79-year-old man took photos of the juvenile on his cell phone.

Officials say the juvenile's family reported the incident to the Johnston County Sheriff's Department, who then requested assistance from OSBI, on Aug. 7.

OSBI obtained an arrest warrant for Orrell through the Johnston County District Court. They then worked with the Cooke County, Texas, District Attorney's Office and Sheriff's Office to obtain a search warrant for Orrell's residence in Muenster, Texas.

Both warrants were served on Aug. 8.

OSBI says Cooke Coujnty seized a number of cell phones, laptops and hard drives from Orrell's home.

Orrell is now awaiting extradition to Johnston County after the Cooke County Sheriff's Office arrested him.
