KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Court documents show a local theme park employee was arrested for child porn after he told investigators he was watching it before they knocked on his door to arrest him.

Investigators believe 24-year-old Nicholas Bishop was sharing child pornography that involved adults sexually abusing children as young as 1 year old.

They aren't saying which park he worked for, only referring to it as a "major theme park"  in the Orlando area that's frequented by children.

Bishop’s arrest has rattled his neighbors in Kissimmee, where a handful of them noted he was outside a lot.

One neighbor said she noticed that, even before this arrest, he was outside his home often when the school buses were dropping off children in the afternoon.

“I woke up and there was just a whole bunch of cars down the street and you could see the cops with the vests and everything,” said neighbor Nashaly Gonzalez, describing Bishop's arrest.

Neighbors said they didn't know why federal investigators were going in and out of Bishop's house, until the news came out.

Investigators said he was using different social media apps and websites, uploading pornography of young children being abused by adults.

According to an arrest report, when they confronted him in the neighborhood, "At first, Bishop claimed that he was searching for pedophiles online to bust them. He later admitted that he was searching for and trading child pornography due to personal interest."

They said he also admitted  he had stolen used panties from a 6-year-old girl and cropped Facebook photos of that child and another child to focus on their private parts.

A man who lived in Bishop’s home said he didn't want to comment on the charges or say where Bishop worked.

WFTV asked Disney, Universal and SeaWorld for comment and Universal said Bishop has not worked there for "quite some time."
