Nob Hill resident arrested in child pornography bust

A San Francisco man was arrested last week in Southern California on suspicion of having hundreds of pictures and videos of children performing sexual acts, police said.

Zachary Singh, 29, was arrested in Santa Barbara while away for the holiday week last Wednesday, a day after San Francisco police served a search warrant at Singh’s Nob Hill apartment, police said.

Singh was not at his apartment on Hyde Street at Washington Street when police arrived last Tuesday around 5 p.m. and found “several media devices” with the pornographic images on them, police said.

The devices allegedly belong to Singh.

Singh was arrested by the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Department and booked into jail there on suspicion of possession of child pornography, two counts of distribution of child pornography and possession of more than 600 files of child pornography, police said.

Singh is out on bail and scheduled to appear in court in The City.
