Three men were arrested in Florida on child pornography charges and a fourth man faces drug-related charges following a months-long undercover operation conducted by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Allen Wright, Brandon Wiseman and Carson Moore Jr. were arrested for child pornography while Matthew Williamson was charged with possessing and trafficking drugs, the sheriff’s office announced Friday.

Moore was also charged with possessing images and videos of animal sexual activity.

Operation “Peer-to-Prison” led to the arrests of Wright, Wiseman and Moore after deputies discovered the three men had hundreds of images and videos of child pornography in their possession. In conducting the investigation, deputies also learned that Williamson had committed drug-related crimes, the sheriff’s office said.
