HEBER CITY, Utah, June 27, 2017  — A Heber City bounce house owner who was arrested after he was accused of sexually abusing at least two children is now facing numerous child pornography charges.

Bryce Johnson, 33, faces 20 second-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a document filed Tuesday in 4th District Court.

A search warrant served at Johnson’s home on June 7 turned up pornographic images of pre-pubescent children, some of them engaged in sexual acts, an affidavit said.

Police said they have examined 2.5 terabytes of raw data, and 3 terabytes remain. Additional charges are likely, they said. In addition, more children have come forward with sexual abuse claims.

Besides operating the bounce house business, Johnson taught ice skating lessons at the Midway City Ice Rink under a company called “Fun Stuff, LLC.”
