COCKEYSVILLE, Md. – The youth group leader of a Baltimore County church has been charged with possession and distribution of child pornography, according to CBS Baltimore.

Investigators reportedly found thousands of pornographic photos of female babies, toddlers and prepubescent girls on Robert David Wright’s home computer. Some of the images allegedly included children being raped.

The 35-year-old is a youth group leader at Clynmalira United Methodist Church in Phoenix, Md. The station reports there is no evidence that the children in the photos and videos were from the church, or that Wright has sexually abused children himself.

Wright is reportedly being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on  a  $150,000 bail. An investigation is ongoing.
