HOUSTON -

Investigators said they found a man in bed with an 8-year-old boy when they went to his home to search for child pornography.

Harris County Precinct 4 deputy constables said their investigation into Chaise Green, 28, led them to his Glenbranch Drive home, where he lived with his girlfriend, her two young sons and his girlfriend's mother. 

Detectives said as they raided the home, they found Green in bed with his girlfriend's 8-year-old son, who wore only shorts and no T-shirt.

Deputy constables said they found numerous photos and videos of child pornography on Green's laptop and flash drive, showing adult men with little boys. Detectives said Green admitted to downloading the images because they "peaked his interest," but Green denied doing anything with his girlfriend's sons.

Acadian EMS said the day of Green's arrest, they terminated his employment as a paramedic for unrelated reasons. The South County Fire Department said two months earlier, Green resigned from his post as a firefighter.

Many parents in his Spring neighborhood are now recounting every minute their children spent with Green.

"Nobody ever thinks your neighbor is looking up child porn and your letting your kids be around them," said Krystal Ledezma.

Ledezma and other neighbors said they felt a greater sense of trust with Green because of his jobs.

"To find out that he is doing that, and he was paramedic and firefighter, that you would never expect from somebody in that position," said Ledezma.

"It's not acceptable to me in any sense," said neighbor Stela Morriss.

Neighbor Noe Martinez said something about Green's interaction with children always made him uneasy.

"It was just something," Martinez said. "He looked a little awkward, like he was taking care of them a little too much, a little too concerned."

Green has been charged with three counts of possessing child pornography. Deputy constables said they are still investigating Green to determine if he was involved in producing or distributing child pornography.

Detectives said the two young boys in the home will be interviewed by Child Protective Services officials to see if there are any signs of abuse.
