An undercover child pornography bust has led to the arrests of eight men, three of whom stand out. One man was a housekeeper at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, another was a cook on Disney’s BoardWalk and a third was a school teacher.

Two of the men worked at locations around Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Angel Rivera-Maldonado, 44, worked in housekeeping at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge while Kevin Nazzaro, 52, was a cook at Big River Grille and Brewing Works on Disney’s BoardWalk.

Disney has yet to comment on the status of these men’s employment, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

Polk County sheriff’s deputies also caught a man whose alleged crimes and occupation were in even more direct conflict. Juan Berrios, 64, faces 35 counts of possession of child pornography and is a first-grade teacher.

Detectives received tips that the Palmetto Elementary School teacher was uploading child pornography depicting children between the ages of three and six. However, after detectives seized his home computers, they discovered pornography with children less than a year old, WFLA reported.

The Polk County School Board has suspended Berrios without pay.

In a statement emailed to WFTS, Polk County Public Schools Superintendent Jacqueline M. Byrd said, “We are taking swift action and cooperating fully with law enforcement in their investigation… I will recommend that his employment be terminated at the July 26th meeting of the Polk County School Board.
