Tina Yost, Greece Resident: "He's got the best prices, he let us keep the bounce house longer than supposed to because it rained. He's a great guy... it just goes to prove you just never know someone."

Tina Yost was shocked when she learned the owner of the company she hired to set up inflatable playgrounds for her birthday parties is charged with child pornography. She was very happy with his service, however says he did one thing that raised a flag.

"When he came to my daughter’s second birthday party, he brought a present and he wanted to give it to her. For me as a mom, I'm protective, so it was kind of creepy to me. But other people said, 'Oh he's being nice.'"

According to a federal complaint against Kevin DiMartino, agents say they discovered DiMartino downloading files that depicted children as young as 5-years-old engaging in sexual activity with adults and other children. DiMartino was arrested after agents interviewed him.

We went to DiMartino's house in Greece where he operates his business, but no one answered the door.

According to the complaint, DiMartino told agents he didn't think he would "show up on the radar... I guess that's a wakeup call."

"It's scary -- do you hire that face painter next year. I mean what are their ulterior motives; you just don't know. It's scary out there when you have young kids."
