Sheriff’s captain arrested on child pornography charge

ASHLAND, Va. (AP) — A former captain in the Chesterfield County Sheriff’s Office has been arrested on child pornography charges.

The Hanover County Sheriff’s Office announced Saturday the arrest of 40-year-old Donny Lewis Dixon of Ashland.

Authorities say he was charged with a single count of possessing child pornography after sheriff’s deputies executed a search warrant at his home.

He is being held at the Pamunkey Regional Jail without bond.

WTVR-TV in Richmond reported that Dixon, who had been with the sheriff’s office in Chesterfield County since 2004, has resigned his post.
