OLATHE, KS (KCTV) -

A Roeland Park man has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography, including images of an unclothed toddler in roasting pan.

Michael D. Arnett, 38, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of producing child pornography.

In his plea, Arnett admitted that investigators found child pornography on his computer when they served a search warrant last May at his home, located in the 5400 block Juniper Drive.

The case began when Homeland Security Investigation's Operation Hotline seized child pornography including images of victims who appeared to be from the area of Overland Park.

Investigators focused on a water bottle in one of the photos bearing the words "Midwest Aquatics" and a phone number beginning with the 913 area code.

Midwest Aquatics is a swim and scuba center located at in the 7500 block of West 160th Street in Overland Park.

With the assistance of teachers at an elementary school in Shawnee Mission, investigators ultimately identified three boys who been photographed at Arnett's home.

At the time the photos were taken, the boys were 11, 8 and 2 years old.

Among the images investigators found was one of a naked boy about 2 years old lying in a roaster pan that was placed inside an open oven.

Another image showed the same boy in the roaster pan with the oven door shut.

Investigators learned that Arnett met the children while he was driving for Kaw Valley Health Systems, a nonprofit corporation that provides medical care and social services for children.

Arnett drove them to family visitations, counseling and other appointments.

Sentencing is set for May 13.

Arnett faces a penalty of not less than 15 years and not more than 30 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
