JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The search of Stuart Irby's home in Eastover Thursday turned up items that will be analyzed in connection with the City of Madison's cyberstalking charge against him.

"During the execution of the search warrant yesterday, the investigators seized seven digital cameras, two laptop computers, a thumb drive, and a few SD cards that go with the cameras," says Master Sergeant Kevin Newman with the Madison Police Department. "They're going to be taken to the Attorney General's office to be sent out for forensic testing."

It's unclear if the 57-year-old could face additional charges.

Madison Police wouldn't elaborate on the Cyberstalking charge, but sources tell 3 On Your Side Irby sent an email with an underage girl's face affixed to a woman's body.

In court Thursday, Irby had one question for Judge Dale Danks. "May I suggest a smaller bond?" he asked.

Judge Danks denied the request, and Irby posted $50,000 bond.

The trouble at the Irby home started one day earlier, when Gayle Lang, Irby's mother-in-law, reported to Jackson Police that Irby vandalized her car and assaulted her. Police carried a covered object out of the home at that time, possibly something used as a weapon. Lang has not yet filed an affidavit for Irby's arrest.

Last year, Irby's wife Karen pleaded guilty to two counts of culpable negligence manslaughter in the deaths of doctors Daniel Mark Pogue and Lisa Dedousis. They were killed in a fiery crash on Old Canton Road in 2009. Karen Irby's car slammed into their truck, and she admitted she had been drinking. She is currently serving an 18-year sentence for that crime.
