Allen man busted with 58 terabytes of child porn

- A man in Allen is facing federal charges after being caught with a massive amount of child pornography.

The Collin County Sheriff’s Office said 39-year-old Richard Belden’s home on McDermott Drive in Allen was searched Tuesday.

Detectives seized several electronic devices with 58 terabytes of data related to child pornography. A single terabyte is equivalent to 1024 gigabytes or more than 500 hours of video.

Belden was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography.

“The Collin County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the National Computer Forensic Institute and the United States Secret Service for the training and equipment they continually provide which makes these types of investigations possible,” the sheriff’s office said.

He is being held in the Collin County jail.
