A 64-year-old British man was arrested in Chiang Mai Wednesday after a lot of pornographic photos of children were found in his computer’s hard drive.
The Department of Special Investigation led police to arrest Fabian Frederick Blandford at his house in Tambon Wieng in Chiang Mai’s Fang district.
The arrest was made after the DSI was alerted by the US Homeland Security Investigations and the US National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that several child pornographic photos were posted by IP address of Blandford in the middle of November.
The Briton has been staying at the house with his Thai wife and they have a child.
Police alleged that Blandford pretended to be a gentle and kind old man to get close to children who he allegedly abused and took their nude photos for sharing on Internet.
Blandford also allegedly offered to teach English to children for free to prey on his victims.
