CLERMONT, Fla. (CBS/AP) Walt Disney World calls itself "The Happiest Place on Earth," but according to Florida police, amusement park worker James Treanor was hiding dark secrets while he prepared food for the young children who frequent the park.

The Disney "cast member" faces 200 counts of possessing child pornography after authorities in central Florida say they found more than 5,000 images of young children, without clothes and in sexual poses, on his computer.

The children in the photos were "clearly under the age of 12," police said. Authorities said some of the images depicted sexual abuse of infants.

Sgt. Chris Loyko, of the Lake County Sheriff's Department, said that the 32-year-old Treanor has been held at the county jail since his Dec. 24 arrest.

Court records showed that Treanor has been assigned a public defender. An after-hours recording at the Lake County public defender's office would not accept a telephone message Sunday.

More than 75 movies were found on a laptop computer, Loyko said, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Treanor recently deleted other images before he was expecting a friend to stay with him over Christmas, the paper reported.

Bond was set at $10,000 for each felony count.
