Gwinnett man in his 80's charged with 68,000 images of child porn

By Scott Kimbler Reporter

An elderly Gwinnett County man is in jail facing charges of having ten of thousands of child porn images on his home computer, thumb drives and iPad. 

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported Neville Perrins, 81, was arrested after a raid on his home in Peachtree Corners turned up 68,000 images of child pornography. Police were tipped off to Perrins by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

The report said Perrins admitted to possessing the images. Police said there are other devices that have not been searched, saying the numbers could go up drastically. 

When prosecuted, each image could carry with it a felony count.
