(TERRE HAUTE) - Officials report that between 2007 and 2012, 50-year-old David Roberts placed hidden cameras in the bedrooms and bathrooms at a home he shared with two minor female victims, creating images of them in various stages of undress.

Law enforcement served search warrants on his home and recovered more than 23,000 images and videos of pornography stored on electronic equipment and storage devices. Police discovered Roberts has also recorded five other minor females who had visited the home.

David Roberts of Terre Haute was sentenced to 15 years on charges of possessing and producing child pornography in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson.

He was arrested after one of the victims discovered the cameras and told her mother, who contacted police.

"Protecting our most vulnerable citizens from sexual predators has been and will remain a top priority of this office," said Minkler. "If you abuse children in the Southern District of Indiana, you can expect the full wrath of federal prosecution."

Officials report Roberts must serve five years of supervised release following his term of imprisonment.
