Pet Smart Employee Accused of Possessing "Infant" Porn Started Dating Wife When She Was 15 -- He Was 27

Just when you thought kiddy porn was about as sick as it gets, a Valley man raised the bar -- he's into "infant" porn.

Aside from his alleged attraction to children who aren't even old enough to speak, 41-year-old Thomas Christopher Adolf loves kids so much that he married one whom he started dating when she was only 15 years old. At the time, he was 27. 

A "proactive Internet investigation" by Valley law enforcement agencies uncovered thousands of images of kiddy porn on Adolf's computer on Tuesday, including adults engaged in sex acts with infants, according adult court records obtained by New Times.

Detectives executed a search warrant at Adolf's home and initially found a computer with about 75 images of kiddy porn saved on its hard-drive.

In one of the images, two girls police believe to be under the age of 15 are seen together naked and holding a teddy bear.

Adolf's wife was home at the time the warrant was served and told police she'd never seen any of the kiddy porn. However, she also told police she and her husband had started dating when he was 27 and she was 15.

Girls, if you're 15 years old and you're dating a 27-year-old man, it's probably a red flag that he might be a pervert.

Adolf initially denied possessing any of the kiddy porn -- then detectives hit the mother load.

Inside the glove box of Adolf's minivan, detectives found 10 hard-drives with more than 12,000 images of kiddy porn stored on them. The ages of the children in the pictures range from "infant to 12 years old," court docs show, and depict children engaged in sexual acts with other children and adults.

Once the hard-drives had been discovered, Adolf sang like a bird. He told cops the images belonged to him and that he was sexually attracted to children.

Adolf told police he used the Internet to download kiddy porn and that he'd done so as recently  as Tuesday.

Adolf was booked on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
