A man facing charges for possession of child pornography was arrested again after he allegedly created a fake Facebook page for his arresting officer–and used it to distribute more child pornography.

Christopher Schuette, 31, of Santa Cruz, was arrested Monday at his home after authorities executing a search warrant found child pornography and evidence that he was responsible for creating the fake Facebook page, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Schuette was reportedly first arrested for possession of child pornography in January of last year, but quickly posted bail three days later.

In December, the Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office was tipped off to a Facebook page purportedly belonging to a Santa Cruz police officer that was distributing inappropriate pictures of children. Detectives determined that the fake page belonged to the officer who originally arrested Schuette last January.

Schuette was arrested on charges of false impersonation, suspicion of distribution of child pornography, stalking, and committing a felony while released on bond. He was booked into the Santa Cruz County Jail with bail set at $250,000, according to the Chronicle.
