A Waffle House waitress trying to return a lost cellphone to its rightful owner helped deputies in Alabama arrest a man accused of possessing child pornography.

Mobile County Sheriff's investigator Mark Bailey told local media that 52-year-old David Sevier was arrested Monday.

Sevier had been eating at the Waffle House in Grand Bay on Feb. 4 and accidentally left his cellphone. Police said the waitress went through the phone to recover the identity of the owner and found nude photos of a girl who appeared to be underage.

Bailey said the Sheriff's Office began an investigation and found about two dozen nude photos of the same 14-year-old girl.

There's no indication Sevier made sexual contact with the victim.

It wasn't immediately clear if Sevier has an attorney.
