Stenhousemuir paedophile caught with thousands of child sex abuse images and videos

Police caught and caged an offender who had stored thousands of pictures and videos of child pornography on multiple devices.

Alan Chalmers (40), from Stenhousemuir, appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court earlier today to answer for his crimes..

He admitted possessing multiple devices and USB’s which contained thousands of indecent images of children created between January 2019 and May 2019.

Chalmers acted with no regard to the young victims in the images and videos he was viewing and was under the mistaken belief the internet would provide him with anonymity and would prevent him being caught.

Chalmers was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison and was placed on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.
