The Seattle Seahawks have fired security manager Aaron Miyasato after his arrest on charges of possession and dealing of child pornography, the team said in a statement to King 5’s Susannah Frame.

Miyasato, 41, was reportedly arrested Wednesday after Seattle Police SWAT team members executed a search warrant at his home. Police reportedly confiscated more than 25,000 images of child pornography, as well as videos of children as young as 1 being sexually exploited.

Miyasato is reportedly being held on $50,000 bail.

The Seahawks’ reaction via statement, per King 5:

"We are aware of the situation and in accordance with the NFL personal conduct policy, we have notified the league of his arrest. This individual is no longer employed by our organization."

Miyasato had been working for the Seahawks or Lumen Field since 2011, according to this LinkedIn page. He also reportedly ran a side photography business.
