The US State Department earlier cancelled his passport, which made him an undocumented foreigner in the country.

His arrest stemmed from a request from the US Diplomatic Security Service, Office of Overseas Criminal Investigation following the issuance of a warrant of arrest by a Minnesota District Court for the crime of distribution of Child pornography.

Bob Raquepo, Chief of BI - FSU, says information from foreign counterparts revealed Dakulil who arrived in the Philippines January this year, established a photography shop business in Pampanga to be his legal cover for his attempt to continue the production and distribution of child porn materials online.

Reports say the US fugitive was planning to recruit minors in the community for his illegal trade.

Weeks of surveillance and information from local assets allowed FSU to zero in on Dakulil’s location which led to his arrest. — BAP, GMA News
