A SERIAL pervert was snared with over 1600 indecent images of children which included a six-month-old baby girl.

Duncan Grant, 30, was held at his home in Glasgow’s Patrick area last June.

Grant kept the images in a hidden folder on his phone as well as a hard drive and a computer.

Prosecutor Adele Macdonald told the Glasgow Sheriff Court 1650 still and moving images of children were recovered across the three devices.

Miss Macdonald added that the children were females aged between six months and 14 years old.

Grant, who has a previous conviction for a similar offence, pleaded guilty on Friday to taking or permitting to be taking indecent images of children.

He also admitted possessing indecent images of children between June and September 2019.

Craig Grimes, defending, told the court Grant works full time for a finance company in the city centre.

He added: “His likely disposal will mean he is to tie up things in his life for the most likely disposal but it’s not definite.”

Mr Grimes also agreed for the electronic devices to be destroyed by the Crown.

Sheriff John McCormick deferred sentence until next month for background reports.

He also put Grant on the sex offenders register for an indefinite period and continued his bail meantime.
