A convicted sex offender is behind bars after investigators said he visited a child pornography site.

Tony Lee Pyle, 45, was booked into the Thomas county jail Thursday.

Captain Steve Jones said Pyle went to a site that was monitored by the FBI.

During the investigation, officials learned Pyle had been convicted of child molestation and was on probation.

“The site pops up and says, 'You are on a site monitored by the FBI,' or something to that nature,” said Captain Jones. “He panicked and freaked out. And then he tried to do himself harm.”

Pyle was treated at Archbold Memorial Hospital then arrested there. 

He is charged with sexual exploitation of a child and violating his probation.
