James Craig Neumann was taken into custody after being charged for having sex with underage boys and sharing child pornography images online.

Neumann used to work as an English teacher in Thailand before retiring in Mae Teng. According to investigations, he often enticed young boys to come and play at his house where he would then photograph them and have sex with them.

He was finally identified after he shared some explicit images on Facebook.

Officials seized evidence including a notebook computer and a mobile phone. According to police, a search of his house also uncovered hundreds of indecent images of children.

Immigration officers also attended along with representatives from the US embassy’s Homeland Security investigative team.

Neumann refused to admit to his crime, however officials claim to have enough evidence to prosecute him.
