A Florida man has been jailed on $14 million bond after hundreds of child porn images were found on his work computer.

Anthony David Mister, 39, of Titusville, Fla., was arrested after police discovered two flash drives from an Aamco auto shop containing more than 600 images of children as young as 2 years old engaged in sexual acts, WFTV reports.

The drive contained file names like “manrimstoddler3yo,” “7yoniece” and “kat5yo,” the arrest report states.

The owner of the Aamco handed over the flash drives to police in December. On Wednesday, detectives interviewed store employees. After they left, Mister told his manager he had “done something very bad” and left work early to speak with his wife. He later went to the police station and admitted the drives were his.

Mister was charged with possession of child pornography and possession of over 10 images including children under 5 and sex acts, police said.

In his confession, Mister told police he had “the problem of looking at children engaged in sex since he was in his 20s." He says he started looking at photos of girls between the ages of 10 and 14 and then moved on to images of younger children including toddlers.

Mister’s case is part of a national trend.

 “Unfortunately, we´ve also seen a historic rise in the distribution of child pornography,” Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. says. “Tragically, the only place we´ve seen a decrease is in the age of victims. This is – quite simply – unacceptable.”
