Brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock has been arrested in Los Angeles on suspicion of possessing hundreds of images of child pornography.
Bruce Paddock, 58, was arrested at a nursing home facility early Wednesday morning.
Documents were filed Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Paddock is being charged with 20 criminal charges. The charges all relate to possession of child pornography or the sexual exploitation of children.
The arrest warrant accuses Paddock of possessing more than 600 pornographic images of children, including 10 or more images of children under the age of 12.
Police have stated the investigation began after “evidence was discovered” in a business Paddock had been squatting at after being evicted.
LAPD spokesman Josh Rubenstein told the Times, the investigation into Bruce Paddock predates the Las Vegas shooting and the two incidents are not connected.
Bruce Paddock’s bail was set at $60,000.
