Mommy Pics of Brit's Sis Trigger Criminal Probe

9/22/2008 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A stolen picture of Jamie Lynn Spears breast feeding her baby has sparked a federal child pornography investigation.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ federal and local authorities are on the hunt for someone peddling 12 pics of Britney Spears, Jamie Lynn, daughter Maddie and baby daddy Casey Aldridge. One of the pictures shows Jamie Lynn breast feeding Maddie -- Jamie Lynn's left breast is exposed.

The pics were taken on Casey's digital camera. We're told he took the camera card to his local Wal-Mart in Louisiana for copies. Law enforcement believes someone at the Wal-Mart may have made extra copies, then tried selling them.

Because Jamie Lynn is a minor, selling the pics -- or buying them -- could constitute a violation of federal laws prohibiting child pornography. Peddling pictures of a minor's breast -- even if not taken for sexual purposes -- could land the seller and the buyer in federal prison if they are marketed across state lines for the purpose of being lurid. Also, anyone purchasing the pics could be prosecuted for the crime of receiving stolen property.

Other pics in the set include Britney holding the baby and one of Jamie Lynn, Britney, Bryan (Brit's bro), Lynne Spears and Jamie Spears around Jamie Lynn's hospital bed. There are also pics of Maddie by herself, and there's a picture of Jamie Lynn in a negligee holding the baby.

Authorities are trying to find the man who is attempting to sell the photos. In addition, we're told Britney's lawyers are thinking about going after Wal-Mart for the alleged security breach.

UPDATE: Wal-Mart tells TMZ, "We saw the story on the wires and it's news to us too. We'll of course investigate what, if anything, has happened here."

ANNOYED    

1. VERY DUMB OF A CELEBRITY COUPLE TO TAKE PHOTOS TO RETAIL STORE FOR PROCESSING. THAT IS A FLAT OUT IDIOT MOVE, WHAT DID THEY EXPECT? CAN THEY NOT AFFORD TO PAY ONE OF THE NANNIES TO PRINT THEM UP AT HOME??

2. THE WALMART EMPLOYEE SHOULD BE TERMINATED, AND LEGAL ACTION TAKEN AGAINST HIM.

3. BRITNEYS LAWYERS NEED TO STAY OFF WALMARTS BUTT, ONE EMPLOYEE TOOK IT UPON HIMSELF TO DO WHAT HE HAS WITH THE PHOTOS. IF BRITNEYS LAWYERS SUE WALMART, WHO DID NOT TAKE PART IN THIS ACTION AS FAR AS I AM AWARE, THEN THE WALMART PRICES WILL GO UP YET AGAIN, AND AFFECT THE NORMAL JOE CONSUMER TRYING TO SAVE MONEY AT A DISCOUNT STORE.

4. LETS NOT BE SO FAST TO SUE EVERYBODY AND THEIR BROTHER FOR BIG BUCKS, AND HURT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SHOP THIS STORE, BECAUSE BRIT IS ANGRY. AGAIN, AS FAR AS THE STORY TELLS, ONE MAN HAS COMMITTED AN OFFENSE AGAINST JAIMIE LYNN. NOT THE WALMART STORE OR CHAIN.

5. HOLD THE ONE PERSON WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PHOTO LEAK ACCOUNTABLE FOR HIS ACTIONS.

6. HOLD CASEY RESPONSIBLE AS THE GUY WHO TOOK "CELEBRITY" PHOTOS TO A RETAIL STORE IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Britney has made many many public displays of her privates so she is out of the equation!! Why would someone steal photos of Jamie Lynn's bastard baby feeding??

Well then why isn't the Baby Daddy facing child porn charges FOR TAKING THE PICTURES?? Something is lopsided here.

He should already be in jail anyway.

Umm first of all, it is not uncommon to go to Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Rite Aid, or wherever to get pics developed or copies made from a digital camera. Some people choose to do so to save on pricey color ink on their printers especially if you're printing tons of pics. Secondly, a pic of someone breast feeding is not considered porn, BUT when a pic of an exposed breast is that of a minor and passed around for personal gain for $$$ that is a crime! It doesn't matter if Jamie Lynn has a baby, she is still a minor! That's like saying a gal gets raped because she was wearing provocative clothing. Wake up people! By the way, shopping at the above stores does not make you a trashy person. There's nothing wrong with being economical. I'd rather buy from these stores than most of the overpriced name brand stores anyday of the week! Remember, most people shop at overpriced named brand stores to fit in with the crowd not because of the quality.

If you'll pardon the expression "Baby Daddy Casey is an assh---" And please remember it took the unwed mommy baby girl to approve of the jerks picture taking. She is just full of great decisions.

Let me make sure I understand this correctly. Jamie Lynn, under the age of consent, gets pregnant (probably by a Disney executive and not boneheaded Casey). No problem. Her sister runs over the feet of paps, abandons her car in the middle of the road, takes every illegal drug known to man. No problem. Their mother pimps both daughter's out for all the money she can possibly get with no thought to their well-being or education. No problem. Someone takes a picture of one of these Spears' skanks--FEDERAL INVESTIGATION. Tell me California isn't celebrity crazed.

Calling Jamie Lynn's baby a "bastard baby" is sooooooo uncool and disgusting. Those without sin cast the first stone.

Something smells fishy in Alaska!

History repeats itself. Just as Nixon and the Republican

party stone walled the Watergate investigation till after the

elections. Now Mccain and Palin are stone walling the Troopergate

investigation. Trying to delay the bad news that will come from the

investigation. If Mccain and Palin gets elected. Palin would be the

first woman VP and the first Vice President to get impeached.

What are they trying to hide??? If they have nothing to hide, why hide?

Lets not repeat the Nixon/Agnew embarrassment.

It's great to know that Neandrathal's are alive and well and commenting on TMZ stories. Where does TMZ gets it's journalists? Are they really left over guests of the Jerry Springer show?

You can take the girls out of the trailer park but you can't take the trailer park out of the girls. Both of them act like the low-lifes they were raised to be.
