The cell phone is being forensically analyzed to determine what is on the phone and who the possible owner is, said Sgt. Benny Scarbrough.

“The phone is being analyzed and until that is completed we just don’t know what types of charges could be involved,” he said.

As of Wednesday evening, no arrests had been made in the case.

“We’re not going to disclose specific information about the incident so it will not jeopardize the investigation,” Scarbrough said.
