LAS VEGAS, Nv. –  Bruce Paddock, the brother of the Las Vegas Massacre shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested Wednesday on Child Pornography Charges.  In a tweet sent out by the Los Angeles Police Department, authorities arrested Paddock on one count of possession of child pornography and 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

 

The complaint posted in the tweet alleges that Paddock had over 600 child pornography related images in his possession in 2014.

 

Police said the case was not related to the shooting his brother carried out earlier this month on the Las Vegas Strip. The complaint states that an “investigation of Paddock was initiated after evidence was discovered inside a business located inside a business.” The business, located in the 9000 block of San Fernando Road in Sun Valley, was apparently where Paddock had been squatting since he was evicted from his prior residence.

 

Paddock was taken into custody on Laurel Canyon Boulevard in North Hollywood.
