A now-former Summerville Police Department school resource officer arrested Tuesday in connection with child pornography charges was a licensed foster parent at the time of his arrest, according to the state's Department of Social Services.

Carlisle Johnson Floyd, 40, of Summerville, is charged with three counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, according to SLED spokesman Thom Berry. Floyd was released on a $30,000 surety bond on Tuesday.

DSS confirmed that agents went to Floyd's home on Wednesday and the family signed paperwork to relinquish their license. 

There were no foster children in Floyd's care at the time of his arrest, DSS spokesperson Marilyn Mathews said.

According to the police department's website, Floyd worked as a school resource officer at Summerville High School, where he graduated in 1993. He also worked at the high school as a volunteer wrestling coach. Floyd's profile has since been removed from the police department's website.  

A court affidavit states the crime occurred some time on or around Aug. 1.

According to Dorchester District 2, "there has been no indication of criminal activity in connection to [Floyd's] position at Summerville High School."

A new school resource officer will be assigned to Summerville High School, according to the school district. 

Sexual exploitation of a minor, second degree consists of distributing, transporting, exhibiting, receiving, selling, purchasing, exchanging, or soliciting material that contain a visual representation of minors in a state of sexually explicit nudity, the affidavit states. 

The charges are felonies carrying a penalty of between two and 10 years in prison upon conviction.

Floyd was booked at the Dorchester County Detention Center,
