An employee of a Central Florida children's play center was arrested Thursday amid a child-porn investigation, and detectives are now looking for children who may have been contacted online by someone calling himself "Tyler."

Aaron Murray, 20, of Clermont was scheduled to appear before a Tavares judge Friday to face charges of possession and distribution of child porn. He was being held on $518,000 bond.

Detectives say that Murray, who works for his family's business, Jump N Joeys Play and Party Zone in Clermont, contacted at least two Lake County children while posing as a teen named "Tyler."

The investigation began in January, when Lake County cyber crimes detectives were contacted by Dallas Police, who said a child in Dallas had been sent emails containing child porn from someone thought to be in Lake County. The sender used the name "Tyler."

The source of the emails eventually were traced to an iPod belonging to Murray, investigators said. Detectives with a search warrant found chats on the iPod associated with "Tyler," as well as 102 child-porn images, Lake authorities said.

Investigators now want to know whether "Tyler" contacted other children. Parents are encouraged to talk with their kids and notify detectives if they have had any such contact. Parents can call the Lake Sheriff's Office at 352-343-2101 or 352-343-9529.
