Local authorities were able to track down the two suspects through DMV records.

Guam – A man accused of possessing child pornography has posted bail and will be able to return to his home which is located near an elementary school in Ordot/Chalan Pago.

According to court documents, Sundram Allagam had in his possession a video depicting pornographic activities between two toddlers.

Court documents further state that he received that video from co-defendant Parameswaran Somasundaram, who had also attempted to share the video through Facebook messenger.

That alerted Facebook to generate an incident data report which was then sent to the National Center of Missing and Exploited Children. In turn the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force referred the case to local authorities who then utilized information provided by Facebook and the Department of Motor Vehicles to track down the suspects.

Earlier this week Allagan posted $15,000 cash bail. He was released from custody and ordered to stay away from all minors.

His next court date is scheduled for November 8, 2017.
