The president of a school board in California has been arrested after thousands of pornographic videos and images of children were found at his home

Fontana Police confirmed that Dennis Chambers, the president of the Buena Park School District Board, was arrested after a lengthy investigation.

For the past six months, the Fontana Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force has been conducting an investigation regarding a group of people who were distributing child pornography over the internet.

During this probe, investigators came to the belief that Chambers, the president of the Buena Park School District Board, trafficked child pornography in the city of Fontana.

Authorities served a search warrant at Chamber's home in the 8000 block of Taylor Street in Buena Park on Wednesday (19 April). They found an electronic storage device that contained thousands of child pornographic videos and images.

Chambers was arrested on suspicion of possession and distribution of child pornography and later booked at the Santa Ana Central Jail.
