TIJUANA — A Canadian man suspected of possessing millions of images of child pornography was arrested recently by a special task force, authorities said.
Arthur Lelland Sayler, who was living in Playas de Tijuana, in Baja California, was arrested at his home Saturday, said Ramon Gomez, a spokesman with Mexico's Attorney General's Office.

Authorities seized four million photos and videos stored in 15 computer hard drives during the arrest.

Gomez said there is evidence that the materials are part of an international child pornography ring that was operating in Mexico, the United States and Canada.
Sayler has been the only person arrested. Agents in the task force are still investigating, Gomez said.

He will appear before a federal court judge on the charges.
Mexican federal Internet investigators first discovered the pornography and initiated the investigation.
