SANFORD, Fla. (WFTV) -- A pastor of a historic church in Sanford and former Disney worker was arrested on child pornography charges, WFTV found out Wednesday.

Police said the Rev. Cedric Cuthbert was looking at the porn on a computer at a Disney resort where he worked. Investigators also said that was the same computer where the Cuthbert, a pastor at the St. James AME church in Sanford, wrote his sermons.

Authorities said he is being held at the Orange County Jail without bail, and was ordered to be held in isolation due to the nature of the charges.

Cuthbert, 49, faced a judge on the charges of soliciting a child for unlawful sexual conduct and possession of a sexual performance by a child.

He used to work at Disney World's Port Orleans Resort as a housekeeping manager for more than seven years.

On April 24, Disney's computer software sounded the alarm to authorities that Cuthbert was allegedly looking at young girls performing sex acts on YouTube and asking for them for more material.

Cuthbert wrote an apology letter to his former co-workers at Disney.

Disney World sure is fertile ground for pedophiles. Good that this "pastor" was caught. Hope he did not hurt any kids.
