BROOKSVILLE, Fla. (TND) — A tip “regarding the possible possession of child pornography” at a home in Florida ended with the arrest of a man who used to be a corrections officer and then worked for Walt Disney World.

Detectives in Hernando County, north of Tampa, got the tip last Saturday and then identified the suspect as Michael David Foster.

On Wednesday, they executed a search warrant and “seized a flash drive and a few SD cards that had been located in a bookbag belonging to Foster.

“The flash drive contained 32 images of child pornography.”

Then, they said after his arrest, “Foster admitted to ownership of the book bag, flash drive, and the SD cards.

“Foster also admitted to downloading and viewing the pornographic images.
