Pasco firefighter arrested for possession of child porn at work, deputies say

The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said he had 10 videos depicting children being sexually assaulted on his phone. He is now on paid leave.

A Pasco County Fire Rescue firefighter was arrested Friday on charges that he kept videos of children being sexually assaulted on his phone, deputies said.

Daniel Esteban Rebora, 32, was then placed on administrative leave by fire officials.

He was arrested at his fire station on 10 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. That station was not identified by deputies.

The agency received a tip that it should search the firefighter’s phone, so detectives obtained a search warrant.

When detectives searched his personal phone, they said they found 10 videos depicting children being sexually assaulted. The Sheriff’s Office does not believe that Rebora produced the child pornography himself, however.

Rebora will not be allowed to return to the fire department until an internal investigation is completed, Pasco County Fire Rescue officials said in a statement Friday night.

He was booked into the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center. The amount of his bail and his jail photo was not available late Friday.
