A 27-year-old man from Luton has been jailed for making and distributing thousands of indecent images of children - three years after he was first arrested by police.
Carl Tofts, of Harcourt Street was given a 32-month jail sentence at Luton Crown Court on Monday (16 September).
A search warrant was carried out in June 2016 after police received information that someone at his address was accessing indecent images of children via the internet.
Tofts was arrested, questioned and subsequently released on bail, while officers seized his devices to download and investigate the content.
He was arrested again in January 2017 by Norfolk Police for similar offences and, in November 2018, he was charged with making and distributing indecent images of children and possession of extreme images.
More than 2,500 images and videos ranging from the most serious category A to category C were found on his devices.
Investigating Officer Michela Zasada from Bedfordshire Police’s Cyber Crime Unit, said:
