The NBI identified the suspect as Elgin Fedric Anderson, 72, of Washington DC, who was collared during a surprise raid on an apartment on Rizal Street, Lawang, Barangay 2 in Buenavista town, Agusan del Norte province.

The arrest of the suspect was implemented by virtue of a search warrant issued by the 2nd branch of the Regional Trial Court at the Hall of Justice, Barangay Libertad, Butuan City.

​​Operatives of the NBI seized from the alleged possession of the suspect a desktop computer, android tablets, digital storage devices, and a sex toy.

NBI agents caught the suspect while he was allegedly using his personal computer that was found to contain alleged child pornography material.

The suspect was placed under surveillance for about a month before his arrest on Saturday night because of information that female children were frequently being brought to his apartment, NBI 13 said

NBI 13 Assistant Regional Director Serafin Gil said the suspect was charged with violation of the Anti-Child Pornography Act in relation to the Cybercrime Prevention Act.

The suspect declined to comment when local newsmen pressed him for his statement while he was being brought by NBI agents to a regional court here yesterday.

The arrest of Anderson came after Australian pedophile Peter Scully was slapped with a life imprisonment sentence by a local court in Cagayan de Oro for multiple charges of child abuse, murder, kidnapping, and pornography, among others.
