(Scroll down for video) A Florida deputy was fired after he was caught with explicit photos and videos of himself on a department issued cell phone.

Indian River County Sheriff’s Lt. Macen LeVan was fired after police discovered 130 pornographic photos and videos, which the officer took while he was at work.

The 18-year veteran’s most recent assignment was at the Indian River County Courthouse.

Detectives took LeVan’s phone during an unrelated investigation after receiving a complaint over on an unrelated matter.

At first, the investigation uncovered that LeVan spent a lot of time in his office despite the fact that he was supposed to work in the courthouse.

When his phone was seized, investigators found that LeVan exposed himself and took photos of his private parts in the courthouse.

He then reportedly shared the photos and videos with others via WhatsApp.

Sheriff Deryl Loar said that LeVan was terminated for “willful neglect of official duties.”
