AKRON -- Educators at Brown Mackie College had no idea what they'd find on a flash drive left behind at a school computer.

But it's likely they didn't picture child pornography.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office says the drive, as well the photos and videos contained on it, belong to Christopher Hill, 27, of New Franklin.

Other items on the drive identified the 27-year-old honor student. Thursday afternoon, deputies used a search warrant to search Hill's home, where they found other evidence. 

Hill is now in the Summit County Jail, facing a felony charge for pandering obscenity involving a minor. 

Lt. Bill Holland says more charges could follow.

"For our office, this is just the beginning of the investigation," said Lt. Holland. "Right now, he has possession of these images or videos, but the bigger picture is if he's been acting upon this, or victimizing any children, and that'll be the next focus of our investigation."

Holland says that, as of now, there's no evidence Hill was producing the pornography. 

Forensic investigators are examining his home computer, as well as digital evidence for clues.

There's no comment from Brown Mackie College, where classes were cancelled for the Good Friday holiday.
