GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. -- Court records, obtained by First Coast News, show Clay County detectives believe Jarred Harrell took pictures of a little girl in the bedroom of his Gano Avenue home.
According to Harrell's arrest warrant involving the molestation and production of child porn charges, detectives seized a digital camera belonging to the 24-year-old at his home in Callahan, Fla.
The camera was found while police were serving a search warrant at the Nassau County house two weeks ago.
The arrest warrant states detectives found, on the camera's storage data card, a video and 11 still images.
Police described the pictures as that of "a partially nude, white female child between the ages of 3- to 5-years old."
According to the warrant, the little girl was asked to "...place herself in different positions during recording."
It states Harrell "...was also seen on the recording taking his hand and spreading" the little girl's body parts in order to expose her genitals.
The warrant said the child's mom identified the girl as her daughter.
Police said the pictures were taken between August and November 2008, when the child was 3.
The mother also told police the video of her daughter was taken in Harrell's bedroom, in his Orange Park home, at 1152 Gano Ave.
The girl's mother was able to identify the room by looking at other pictures on Harrell's camera, which were taken at the same time as the video, police said. 
In addition to the molestation and production of child porn charges, Harrell is also charged with 29 counts of possession of child porn. 
Just released court records show the ages of the girls in those pictures, which police said were found on Harrell's computer, are from under 10- to 18-years-old.
None of the charges against Harrell are related to the October disappearance of 7-year-old Somer Thompson, who vanished on her way home from school and was found dead in a landfill days later. But he is considered by the Clay County Sheriff's Office to be a person of interest in the case.
