Α 35-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, for possession and distributing on the web of child pornography material.
The man is charged with distributing over the internet more than 30,000 photographs and videos containing hard-core child pornography images with infants, young children and teenagers.
Police traced the IP address of the perpetrator, who is currently unemployed, and found that he was using a special net distribution programme for child pornography files.
A search of his house turned up four hard disc drives hidden in a couch, eleven DVDs, a laptop, two cell phones, seven gas ampoules, a can of pepper spray, a folding club and an airgun.
The detainee will be sent before a Thessaloniki prosecutor.
