BREAKING: Stephen Paddock’s Brother Arrested For Child Porn—In Hollywood

Hollywood, CA — Truth is indeed stranger than fiction. As the country attempts to understand why and how Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers earlier this month, most every overturned stone leads to new questions. Now, in a most bizarre move, police have arrested Paddock’s brother, Bruce, for alleged possession of child pornography.

The arrest was captured on video as a swarm of LAPD cops, FBI agents, and even a helicopter moved in to make the arrest.

According to TMZ, who took the video, the arrest was made in Hollywood. As the pedophilia scandal rocks Tinseltown, the idea of the Vegas Shooter’s brother being arrested for child porn there is, indeed, mind-boggling.

According to local sources, the arrest Wednesday of Bruce Paddock was confirmed by a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation but not authorized to discuss it publicly.

As TMZ reports:

Bruce Paddock was taken into custody moments ago in North Hollywood, CA at an assisted living home.

Law enforcement sources tell us … cops were tipped that there was child porn on his computer and they got a search warrant. Our sources say the investigation began before his brother, Stephen, shot up the Vegas music festival earlier this month.

Our sources say before the shooting cops were trying to locate Bruce without success, but after his brother committed his heinous act a tip came in Bruce was living at an assisted living facility.

Cops say they found child porn images on his computer.

The arrest was made by a joint task force that included the FBI and LAPD.

According to Newsweek, Bruce Paddock had a lengthy criminal history well before his brother opened fire on concertgoers along the Las Vegas Strip on Oct. 1.

Over the years, he has faced charged of arson, criminal threats and burglary, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Bruce was unlike his brother Eric, who was open with the media in the aftermath of the attack, telling reports, during a lengthy interview, that he was completely dumbfounded as to how his brother could do such a thing.

Bruce Paddock spoke with NBC News in the aftermath of the attack, however, he said he hadn’t talked with his brother in about 10 years.

“I don’t know how he could stoop to this low point, hurting someone else,” Bruce Paddock told the news network.

Although he claimed that he didn’t know how his brother could stoop to such a low point, Bruce, himself, if these allegations are true, had no problem hurting someone else. In fact, he apparently had no problem hurting society’s most vulnerable—children.

Adding more mystery to this raid and subsequent arrest of Bruce Paddock is the fact that police refused to confirm this was Paddock’s brother.

As KTLA reports, the child pornography investigation took place in the 5300 block of Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Mike Lopez confirmed to KTLA. Lopez did not identify Bruce Paddock as the subject of the investigation.

A source who requested anonymity did confirm the identity of the suspect as Bruce Paddock to the Los Angeles Times.

It was also reported earlier this month that a former friend of Bruce Paddock threatened to kill him and was living in his San Fernando Valley shop space as a squatter, spying on him and others.
