Man with large collection of child pornography pleads guilty in B.C. court

Police say they found 139 hours of video and more than 27,000 images of child pornography

Police say a United States resident who investigators traced from Colorado to Alaska to Montana to the Northwest Territories and then to Victoria has pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Victoria police say David Stallcup had one of the most extensive collections of child pornography they had seen.

Police say the child exploitation unit began investigating Stallcup, who was going under another name, in 2014.

When they went into his home several months later, police say they found 139 hours of video and more than 27,000 images of child pornography.

When an arrest warrant was issued in April 2015, police say they learned Stallcup was in an Oregon jail and determined that he had been evading police on outstanding charges across the United States for 14 years, creating different identities.

He was extradited to Victoria last November and police say he pleaded guilty on Jan. 18 to the possession charge.

Stallcup had been using an assumed name since 2001.

Police say he obtained certification as a registered nurse in the Northwest Territories and had been working as a nurse in Victoria.

They say Stallcup remains in custody awaiting sentencing.
