After another tip off from the AFP this ******** was arrested. He created children's apps! No bail I hope for this one.


Police will allege they found child abuse material stored on Tregloan's mobile phone during a search of his home.

They also said they found a significant number of video files stored on the phone that were filmed from outside the homes of residences in Adelaide.

The footage showed the occupants in the homes getting undressed and performing sexual acts.

Dozens of people have been arrested across Australia today and 16 at-risk children have been removed to safety. A construction boss, a shelf stacker, a police officer, a tow truck driver it goes on and on.

Monsters should get life.

  • At least 46 children have been abused, some as young at 16 months

The AFP and NSW Police have arrested 14 men, who are facing a total of 828 charges for child abuse offences.

The alleged offenders are accused of producing and sharing child abuse material to a wide-reaching online network in Australian and overseas.

This guy is one of the worst of the worst. I know people who knew him and they had absolutely no idea what a monster he was.

It's a little suspicious that there are no judges being nabbed by these raids. Perversion is not limited to society bottom feeders.

Judges in South Australia have been caught before but I imagine now if inclined, they'd know to stay off the internet. Operating under cover of a VPN isn't a guarantee they won't get caught.

Well done, another one from the North Shore behind bars. The 26yo been charged with bestiality as well and the animal has been removed to a safe place.

Seventeen men have now been charged with child sex offences as part of the Australian Federal Police's (AFP) Operation Arkstone which launched last year.

Eleven of the 17 men are from New South Wales.

A man was arrested at his home in Lane Cove yesterday and is facing child abuse material offences, a bestiality offence and one count of wilful and obscene exposure in a public place.

Having an impact internationally as well, which is great.


Nine children, including some as young as two years old, have been rescued from alleged child exploitation in the Philippines after a tip-off from Australian Federal Police.

The tip-off came after a Victorian man was charged for allegedly paying for live-distance child exploitation in November 2019.
The children, aged between two and 16 years old, were removed from harm last week after the AFP alerted the Philippine Internet Crimes Against Children Centre (PICACC).

At least it wasn't a terabyte

Not sure I'd be putting my hand up for that if my husband was caught up in something like this. :huh:

"His wife is prepared to allow him to return home and will monitor his conduct," barrister Gregory Stanton said.

She possibly has no choice? He’d no doubt control the purse strings.

Would highly recommend a podcast called 'Hunting Warhead'. A really in-depth look at how one of the largest dark web child abuse sites was brought down by an international police operation including the AFP. There's some interviews with the head admin of the site and provides a pretty interesting insight into his messed up mind

I won't post the whole article, it's really shocking.

A New South Wales man who was a member of a global child abuse network has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years' jail for crimes a court heard were of the "worst kind".

Warning: This article contains details that some readers may find distressing

Bret Anthony Chesworth, 55, pleaded guilty to seven of nine charges earlier this year.

The guilty pleas related to the possession of child abuse material and using a carriage service to transmit and access child abuse material between March 2019 and September last year.

The Newcastle District Court heard Chesworth was caught with a series of images of children on his phone and other devices, including images of a six-month-old baby.

The warning towards the end of the article quoted should be required reading for parents/carers of children:
"Victoria Police will continue to work closely with our law enforcement partners across Australia and internationally to actively target online predators and to protect children," she said.

"I would urge parents to be vigilant and to proactively have conversations with your children about online safety.

"Children can be groomed in a matter of minutes – it's so important that everyone understands the warning signs of unwanted contact, how to protect your or your family's privacy online, and how to report any suspicious activity."

The hands of the AFP will stretch all the way to the Philippines.. Today.

afp.png


Not sure why it's so blurry, here's the main.

The AFP can reveal a child has been rescued from alleged child sexual abuse in the Philippines following investigations by the Australian Federal Police and the Philippine National Bureau of Investigation.
The 14-year-old girl was removed from harm on 4 May 2022 after the AFP International Command in the Philippines provided intelligence to Philippine authorities and the Philippine Internet Crimes Against Children Center (PICACC).
The information was referred off the back of the arrest and charge of a Victorian man for alleged child exploitation offences. Evidence seized allowed the AFP and Philippine authorities to track and identify a child victim based offshore.
The child has been placed in the care of a local social welfare office.
