Detectives from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office have arrested four teens on charges of transmitting child porn.

According to investigators, a 14-year-old girl was secretly recorded performing a sex act on one of the suspects inside a dressing room at the JC Penny store located at the Brandon Town Center on March 18.

The video was later posted on several Instagram accounts.

After the victim's mother called police, investigators found the video was still on one of the teens' phones.

All four juveniles have been arrested and booked into Hillsborough County's Juvenile Assessment Center.

They face several charges including production of child porn, transmission of child porn and possession of child porn.
