A Walt Disney World employee was arrested this morning on three counts of possessing child pornography.
Investigators served a search warrant at the home of Charles Hurrey, 29, on Cagan Crossing's Boulevard in Clermont this morning and found three videos depicting children engaging in sex acts with adults and each other on an external hard drive, according to an arrest affidavit.
Hurrey admitted to downloading the videos and told investigators that he is interested in child pornography because he is curious why people would make them, according to the affidavit.
Hurrey denied ever sexually abusing a child, according to the affidavit.
Kim Prunty, a spokeswoman for Walt Disney World, confirmed that Hurrey was employed at Disney's Hollywood Studios, where he issued and repaired photography equipment and deployed photographers to locations around the park.
"Obviously, we take these things very seriously," Prunty said. "He has been placed on unpaid administrative leave pending the outcome of these charges."
Investigators zeroed in on Hurrey during an ongoing undercover investigation with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, according to Det. Chris Loyko of the Lake County Sheriff's Office.
Hurrey is being held at the Lake County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond.
