LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- One man's effort to speed up his business ends in a child porn arrest.  The owner of a local realty company hired an expert to check out the company computers.  That's when Lee County deputies say disturbing images of young children were found on David Roberts work computer. 

Roberts is behind bars at the Lee County jail.  He's been fired from his job as a real estate agent and his former boss hopes this serves as a lesson for others.

"It made me sick, you know?  I'm a father," said Kevin Haag, owner, Douglas Realty and Development.

Haag says he has no tolerance for child pornography.

"I was kind of in disbelief because I don't think you ever expect somebody is going to have that on their computer.  Its never who you expect," said Haag.

Haag owns Douglas Realty and Development.  In December, he hired an IT consultant to make sure their computer system was in tip top shape.

"Everyone was aware, believe it or not, that we were going to go through these computers and check them for speed and check them to make sure everything was running properly," said Haag.

That's when the computer expert reportedly found child pornography in David Roberts files.  Management told WINK News that Roberts worked at their satellite office off Lee Blvd in Lehigh Acres but Roberts wasn't an actual employee, he worked on commission just using an office here as a real estate agent.  But it was inside the building here that Robert's computer was found with child pornography on it.

Deputies say Roberts told them he did research on pornography and on child pornography.  He told deputies when he realized what images he downloaded, he deleted them.  WINK News tried speaking with Roberts' family but no one was home.  Haag says no one should tolerate this kind of behavior at home or at work.

"I think this is a good lesson for people.  This is just not something that you should do or have on your computer," said Haag.

Roberts is being held at the Lee County jail on a $50,000 bond.
