SEMINOLE – A Temple Terrace fire inspector has been arrested and accused of possessing “thousands of images and videos of child pornography, ranging in ages from infants to young teenagers,” according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

Casey Dwayne Hannah, 40, of Seminole, was charged with 20 counts of Possession of Child Pornography. Deputies say Hannah is currently employed by the city of Temple Terrace as a fire inspector and was previously employed as a firefighter for Suncoast Fire Rescue.

Deputies said their investigation began in March 2020 after receiving tips from the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children.

Detectives got a search warrant from the Sixth Judicial Circuit for Hannah’s Microsoft OneDrive account. Detectives said  the account contained thousands of images and videos of child pornography, ranging in ages from infants to young teenagers, dating back to January 2000.

In an interview with detectives Wednesday (June 10), Hannah admitted to possessing child pornography but denied having any sexual contact with children.
