Bryan Scott Carrejo, 33, pastor of the Victory Chapel in Orange City, Florida, was arrested Wednesday and charged with five counts of possession of child pornography of children as young as 8 years old, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Carrejo is being held without bond at the Volusia County Branch Jail pending his first court appearance.

The arrest came after investigators discovered that someone at his residence had offered to share child pornography online, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said. A search warrant was executed, and FDLE agents found pornography files showing children as young as 8 years old.

Child Rescue Coalition provided assistance in the case, according to the FDLE.

Victory Chapel is a Pentecostal church located north and east of Orlando. Its website is currently offline, but the church Facebook page says Victory "is a local church with a world wide vision, reaching out to the DeLand, Orange City, and Debary, Florida area!"
