A young IT worker that parades himself on Instagram with shirtless shots and points to his growing Only Fans account has been arrested in an Australian Federal Police (AFP) raid over a suspected online child abuse network.

Alec McGeary, 20, formerly of Hobart in Tasmania but currently living in Botany in Sydney was arrested on Wednesday at his apartment where it will be alleged officers found at least 11 videos on electronic devices.

McGeary was identified in court as being a part of an ongoing Australia-wide investigation looking into a national network allegedly distributing child abuse material.

The investigation that sparked his arrest began in February following a tip from the United States’ National Center for Missing and Exploited Children which has led to dozens of charges laid against several people across Australia.

He was charged with possessing or controlling child abuse material using a carriage service and using a carriage service to access child abuse material.

According to the Southern Courier, “the fresh-faced tech wiz” was held in custody overnight before appearing in the Central Local Court on Thursday.

The Southern Courier reported he sat slumped in handcuffs when beamed in from the Sydney Police Centre, wearing a maroon T-shirt and blue jeans, his blond hair pushed back in a quiff.

Magistrate Philip Stewart granted McGeary strict conditional bail but insisted his mother Kylie McGeary post a $2000 surety to ensure the Hobart-raised man did not leave the state.

Commonwealth prosecutors did not oppose bail, prompting Magistrate Stewart to make clear his “significant” concerns about releasing someone with few community ties in NSW.

McGeary has been “known” around the Sydney gay scene for the past couple of years since moving from Tasmania in early 2019.

His Instagram account is full of shirtless images, many showing him wearing swimwear or underwear, and a direct link to his OnlyFans account which has 53 posts including 61 videos and actively mentions his non-sexual hobbies and interests that include: Gaming, Technology, Science, Maths, Gym, Pyrotechnics & Explosives and Pole Dancing.

The case against McGeary was classed as “overwhelmingly strong” based on facts that were presented in court and the magistrate made it clear there was also some admissions from the accused.

McGeary, who has been banned from accessing the internet as part of his bail conditions, will return to court on July 22.
