PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (ABC4 News) – A Pleasant Grove man has been arrested on multiple charges after he recorded children inside the bathroom of his home.

Foster parent John Kimble was arrested at his home Friday after police served a search warrant. According to a probable cause statement a child living in the home reported finding a digital camera in a candle holder placed in the bathroom.

When the warrant was served officials found the camera in the exact place the child had described. 

In an interview with police Kimble stated he knew they were searching for devices of child pornography. Kimble admitted to police that there had been two hidden cameras on multiple devices with pornographic recordings inside the home.

One of the teens in the home told police Kimble would make a 10-year-old boy strip naked as punishment. Kimble admitted to this, saying the child has ADHD and making him strip would force him to concentrate on the punishment. 

Kimble faces three counts of aggravated sexual abuse, 20 counts of manufacturing child pornography, 100 counts of procession of child pornography and 20 counts of voyeurism
