A suspect arrested for illegally recording people with a hidden camera, in a local church bathroom, is now charged with child pornography.

Escambia County Sheriff’s Office investigators served a search warrant at David Patrick Nims home located on the 7400-block of Hidden Valley Road after arresting him for video voyeurism on June 7th.In that case the 37- year old was taken into custody after investigators identified Nims as the person who hid a camera in a bathroom at the Calvary Baptist Church on Pine Forest Road.

According to Escambia County Sheriff’s Office the search of Nims’ home revealed other electronic devices which were seized. After downloading a laptop found in the home more than 100- files of child pornography was discovered.
