Thousands of photos of child pornography were reportedly discovered on the phone of a Logan school staffer

Ivan Gabriel Cardona Davila, 27, was arrested last week after police searched his home. Cache Valley Daily reported that Davila worked at Fast Forward Charter High as the tutor and mentor supervisor and a math intervention specialist. The school reported 259 students were enrolled during the 2019-2020 school year.

Police have been investigating Ivan Davila since Snapchat sent them a tip in April.

A monthslong investigation into a Logan charter school employee found the man allegedly had thousands of pornographic images of child sexual abuse on his phone.

Police documents say Davila was a special education teacher. Officials at the charter school did not immediately respond to an email for comment Monday evening.

Snapchat, the photo sharing and messaging app, reported Davila’s account to Logan police in April, according to the probable cause affidavit. The company told police that the user had shared nearly 50 pornographic images of children.

Police connected Davila to the account using his email and IP addresses. Officers served a search warrant at his home on July 14, the document said.

The affidavit also states that police found 16,000 pornographic images, most of them involving children, on Davila’s phone, as well as five guns and a cannabis vape pen in his room.

Officers arrested Davila that day. On the way to jail, he said he knew viewing child pornography was wrong but could not stop, according to the probable cause statement.

Davila was booked into jail on suspicion of 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and other drug- and gun-related counts. He is being held without bail.
