Fallbrook man arrested after wife catches him with child porn on his computer

A Fallbrook man was arrested after his wife caught him looking at alleged child pornography on his computer was arrested March 11.

Todd David Norton, 43, was arrested at his home in the 4100 block of Deluz Road Thursday afternoon after deputies executed a search warrant and found alleged child pornography on his computer, said Fallbrook Sheriff's Detective Dan Laibach.

Norton's wife called authorities Monday to say that she had left her husband of four years and had taken their four-year-old child with her because she caught him watching a movie clip of two pre-teen girls touching each other, Laibach said.

“When she left Norton, he began to leave threatening voicemail messages on her phone, saying that he was going to shoot up the house she was staying at, and that he was going to kidnap their daughter,” said Laibach.

Norton's wife reported the criminal threats to the police, and also cited the pornographic downloads he had made.

“We had a preliminary check of the computer after delivering the warrant,” said Laibach. “We found sufficient images of child pornography to make the charge.”

Pornographic images of children under the age of 14 were found on the computer. Currently the FBI is continuing investigation on the computer's hard drive to find more data.

Norton was booked into the Vista jail on $50,000 bail, according to jail records.

On his MySpace page, Norton lists his occupation as rancher/construction and says he is a proud parent who graduated from Millikan Senior High School in Long Beach in 1984.

According to Laibach, Norton has no prior offenses, and is not registered as a sex offender.
