Bradley Lenz Charged With Printing Child Porn At Store Photo Kiosk

Bradley Lenz of Edmonton, Canada, is not only a pervert, it appears, he’s an idiot as well.

Police say that for some reason, Lenz used the self-service photo kiosk at a local grocery store to print out images of child pornography. That would be bad — and stupid — enough. Except that he didn’t realize that when the paper in the printer ran out, his repugnant and illegal photos would continue to print.

So Lenz just left the store. Employees who later restocked the paper in the printer were shocked and disgusted by what then came out of the machine.

They called police, who checked surveillance footage and identified Lenz — who had faced sex-crime charges before. They got a search warrant for his home and, on Nov. 27, found more child pornography there as well as video and electronic equipment.

Why Lenz chose to print out his kiddie porn in a public grocery store has yet to be explained.

That’s Lenz in the photo above, attempting to elude a TV news crew after his previous sex-crime charge, which involved allegations of covertly filming women in a university rest room.

Police don’t yet know if the child porn photos were taken by Lenz himself, or whether he simply grabbed images off the internet and printed them at the store. Investigators are in the process of trying to identify the children depicted in the sickening images.

"That can be a fear every time that something as disturbing as this occurs. Not all of the victims in the photos have been identified so we don't know if there are potentially more victims or if this was all data that was sourced from the internet,” said Detective Brian Cross of Edmonton’s Internet Child Exploitation team.

He credited store employees with helping to nab the sicko, Lenz.

“They went out of their way to cooperate with our investigators. Without the information we got from them we probably wouldn't have been able to go that far in the investigation," said Cross.

Lenz now faces charges of possessing and accessing child pornography.

In 2007, a woman at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology noticed a camera pointed at her from a ceiling vent in a women’s bathroom. Police found the camera as well as video recording equipment, which they traced to Lenz.

But a judge ruled that there wasn’t enough evidence to convict Lenz that time.
