PEORIA, Ariz. – An employee at a McDonald's restaurant in the Valley was arrested after police found child pornography on his home computer.

Michael Latecz, 24, of Peoria, faces 10 counts of commercial sexual exploitation of a minor.

In April, detectives from the Arizona Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force discovered that a computer at Latecz's home was being used to share images and videos of child pornography.

Phoenix police and task force members served a search warrant at the home on Tuesday and located a computer and external hard drive in Latecz's bedroom. According to court documents, they found thousands of images and videos on an external hard drive.

Latecz admitted to police that he's attracted to children under the age of 15, according to court records.

His bond was set at $25,000.
