A U.S. man who worked illegally as a registered nurse in B.C. has pleaded guilty to possessing a massive child pornography collection.
Matt Rutherford with Victoria police says officers seized 775 videos running a total of 139 hours and more than 27,000 images from David Stallcup’s downtown Victoria home in March 2015.
Soon after Stallcup fled to the States.
Rutherford says he was located months later in an Oregon prison and extradited to Canada last November.
Police say it turned out prior to his imprisonment, Stallcup had been evading U.S. police for 14 years, leaving behind a trail of false identities.
Investigators say he was somehow able to obtain a registered nurse certification in the Northwest Territories, which he had been using while living in Victoria.
A BC’s College of Nurses public advisory from May 2015 says Stallcup had been working in Victoria under the name David Robert until February of that year.
He remains in prison awaiting sentencing.
