CAGED: Councillor Gallego is accused of downloading and distributing child porn

A COUNCILLOR has been locked up after police found tens of thousands of child porn images and videos on his computer. 

Marcos Callego Alonso, PSOE councillor in Torrejon de Ardoz, near Madrid, is also accused of distributing some of the more than 64,000 files, which included images of babies.

The arrest this week was part of a larger operation being carried out across the country, which has seen at least one other arrest in the same town.

Both suspects allegedly used the same web address to download the sick images.

Gallego has already submitted his resignation certificate at the Consistory.

The politician reportedly cooperated fully with police and is free on bail until he is taken before an investigating judge.

He has been a member of the PSOE for almost 20 years and has worked in several telecommunication companies, including ONO, Seirt and Sidocom.

The secretary of Environment and Sustainable Development of Torrejon was also working for a multinational in his town.
