Police in Pennsylvania, said that the parishioner reported the Roman Catholic priest after seeing inappropriate material on both computers.
66-year-old John Stephen Mraz of Bethlehem, was arrested after the parishioner contacted the Diocese of Allentown.

The Diocese reported Mraz to police. After an analysis of the computers, police found files of child pornography and many searches for photos and videos of boys engaged in sex acts.
Mraz was charged with sexual abuse of children, criminal use of a communications facility, and obscene and sexual material and performances.
He was released after posting $50,000 bail.
