WARNING: Graphic content.

A 39-year-old man allegedly part of a child sex ring which “passed around” a two-year-old girl in exchange for drugs has been charged with 104 offences including bestiality with dogs and child rape.

The former Townsville child care worker’s alleged victims included children at the child care centre where he worked, his own children and siblings.

He also allegedly drugged and raped the children of drug-addicted women he met through online dating sites, according to the Townsville Bulletin.

His alleged victims were aged from babies up to 16-year-olds plus one adult, and his alleged crimes date from 1995 – when he was in his mid-teens – up to his arrest in July this year.

Police also charged the man, who comes from Townsville suburb of Pimlico, with four charges of bestiality, drug charges, indecent treatment and the production of child pornography.

Townsville Child Protection and Investigation Unit officer-in-charge Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Miles said the man allegedly sought out “vulnerable” women via dating sites to take advantage of their children.

Police will allege he gained the trust of the women, before he drugged and raped their children.

Detective Miles said he also allegedly used one of the woman’s dogs in some of the sexual acts.

A two-year-old girl involved in the ring was found in Cairns this week and has since been taken into the care of the Child Safety Department.

Detectives had more than 300 hours of footage and photographs the man allegedly filmed during his offending which was stored on hard drives and shared on social media.

A 49-year-old woman was cautioned on three counts of bestiality.

Detective Miles described the case as one of the largest examples of child exploitation he had seen.

“This is probably one of the larger ones we have had in recent years, particularly given the number of victims and the nature of offending taken place,” he said.

“His desire for his sexual gratification and his needs has been such that he has run quite strongly to attracting as many possible victims into his trust.”

Police are still investigating the possibility of laying more charges against the man, who has been taken into custody.

The man will face Townsville Magistrates Court on September 29.

Police are appealing for anyone else who may have concerns they or their children have been in the company of the alleged offender to come forward.

They will allege the man shared the child pornography with a 38-year-old woman and a man, 33, who were also been charged.

The man, from the neighbouring Townsville suburb of West End, is charged with six counts of distributing child exploitation material, possess child exploitation material, use carriage service to access abuse material, produce and possess dangerous drugs and possessing tainted property.

The 38-year-old woman has appeared in Townsville Magistrates Court charged with burglary, possessing child exploitation material and distributing child exploitation material.
