EL RENO, Oklahoma -

Authorities have arrested a man accused of molesting children across the metro. Now, deputies are working to locate his victims and are warning parents there could be many more unknown victims.

Roger Preston Kuhn is in the Canadian County Jail after being personally arrested by Sheriff Randall Edwards. Kuhn is now awaiting federal prosecution for child molestation and distribution of child porn.

"That dude is a pervert, and he deserves to go to jail," neighbor Tevin Martin said.

Canadian County deputies say Kuhn, who lived in Norman, unknowingly shared part of his porn collection online with an undercover investigator in El Reno. 

"There was video of prepubescent girls [who] were being raped and having sex by adult males," Canadian County Undersheriff Chris West said. "There were literally hundreds of files of videos and photos of child porn that was coming from [Kuhn's] computer."

Deputies arrested Kuhn at a home less than a mile from Norman's Eisenhower Elementary. Kuhn's former roommate told News 9 she had no idea he was a pervert. Neighbors were also surprised.

"I've got little sisters. They run around here. Little kids play over here," Martin said.

Once in handcuffs, deputies say Kuhn confessed to molesting the children of his friends and family. Authorities believe at least 10 kids have been victimized.

"It's kind of like drinking beer. [When an officer asks] how many have you had ... [suspects] normally say two. If [Kuhn is] going to say 10, Lord knows how many there are," West said.

In the past 17 months, Canadian County has put 50 people behind bars in connection to child porn. If convicted, Kuhn could face life in prison.

"I hope he knows that once he goes to jail, he's going to get beat up so he better be prepared for it," Martin said.

Deputies say only three percent of child predators are ever caught because many children are ashamed and afraid to talk about the crimes. Experts say one of the best things parents can do is simply talk to their kids.

Kuhn is being held on a $200,000 bond.
