Thai police have arrested a British man in northern Thailand after U.S. authorities tipped them to an Internet address where child pornography was being uploaded.

Department of Special Investigation Lt. Col. Paisith Sungkahapong said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security informed the Thai agency in November that images were being uploaded and sent from a specific Internet address.

Police on Wednesday arrested Fabian Frederick Blandford, 64, at his home in Chiang Mai province, where he lives with his Thai wife and two children.

Possession of child pornography carries a penalty of up to five years in prison, and distribution of the images carries a penalty of seven years.
