ANGELES CITY - An American national collecting photos of naked women was arrested Tuesday for allegedly engaging in child pornography.

Herman Arnett Ross was arrested following a police report from the US Department of Justice Federal Bureau that he was into online child pornography. Ross' tablet, which will be used as evidence, contained hundreds of lewd photos. Police also seized sex toys, pornographic DVDs, routers and 2 cellular phones.

Police said Ross usually invited minors to have sex with him or take naked photos at his rented apartment, and would offer P1,000-P7,000 for the lewd acts. He also supposedly invited his victims to bring more girls. 

The Philippine National Police - Women and Children Protection Center, and the Anti Cybercrime Group served the search warrant at Ross' rented apartment along Don Juico Avenue, Barangay Malabanias in Angeles City.

Ross refused to give any statement.
