John Landrum Jr. Busted With "Some of the Most Egregious Child Porn" Cops Have Seen in a While

A Phoenix man was arrested this morning after police found in his home hundreds of videos and images of kiddie-porn that investigators are calling "some of the most egregious child porn" they've seen in a long time.

John Landrum Jr., 52, was booked into a Maricopa County jail this morning on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. Police say additional charges are possible.

What makes Landrum's alleged brand of kiddy-porn any more depraved than your run-of-the-mill chomo flick is unclear at the moment -- Phoenix police declined to get into specific details. Police also declined to share details about Landrum -- where he works, any family, etc.

Phoenix Sergeant Tommy Thompson says police were "directed towards" Landrum, but wouldn't say how (if police provide details about how they track kiddie-porn, other perverts could be tipped off).

We have a feeling there's more to this story than what police were willing to discuss at this afternoon's press conference -- Thompson advised reporters to "do your homework" on Landrum, which we're in the process of doing.

Stay tuned -- we should have Landrum Jr's arrest report in the morning.
