(Scroll down for video) A youth pastor was caught recording young girls using his bathroom after a colleague used his computer and found disturbing videos, according to police in Florida.

Early on Thursday morning, a former worship director at Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church in Lecanto, was arrested on several sex charges, including video voyeurism and lewd and lascivious exhibition.

Chad Robison, 36, from Hernando, worked at Seven Rivers Presbyterian as the worship director from 2011 to 2017.

Detectives started this case back in May, when a coworker discovered inappropriate videos on Robison’s laptop that he had left at work.

Church personnel immediately contacted our Major Crimes Unit and Robison’s employment was terminated from the church.

Utilizing special equipment from the Internet Crimes Against Children Central Florida Task Force, a detective with the High Tech Crimes unit began to scour through Robison’s laptop, which contained thousands of videos and pictures.

Since May, detectives have been sorting through more than 3,000 videos and over 350,000 pictures that were found on Robison’s laptop.

Hundreds of items featured young girls performing virtual sex acts with Robison. Robison also filmed young girls who visited his home while they were using his restroom without their knowledge.

Detectives have already discovered several out of state victims, including from Canada and New York, and have made contact with the appropriate jurisdictions.

The videos go back several years all the way through to just a couple of months ago.

"We believe there could be multiple victims. Some may be from here in Citrus County, and others across the states and abroad," said Major Crimes Capt. Brian Spiddle.

Sheriff Prendergast called the pastor "a very sick man."

Robison was charged with 3 counts of lewd and lascivious exhibition, 1 count of knowingly promoting sexual performance by a child, and 3 counts of video voyeurism for own use.

His bond was set at $26,000.
