SHAWNEE, Okla. -- A Shawnee man is accused of shocking sex crimes, spanning two counties.

An arrest warrant in Oklahoma County accuses Shane DeRyckere of aggravated possession of child pornography, and it's not the first time he has been arrested for the same crime.

At a Days Inn last month, Oklahoma City police were called to investigate an unresponsive woman. After waking her up, police searched her phone and discovered hundreds of pictures of underage girls.

That phone belonged to DeRyckere.

According to court records, investigators found "1,930 images showing young females on the phone... many between the ages of 11 and 17... as well as 25 images depicting bestiality... including sex acts involving dogs or horses."

"It's horrible," said neighbor Don Martin. "I just can't understand anybody like that. It's just beyond comprehension."

The suspect's neighbors understandably say they're disgusted by the allegations.

"I just don't understand anybody like that. You know he's a grown man," said Martin.

A search of court records in Pottawatomie county shows the suspect got charged last year with aggravated possession and distribution of child porn, downloading obscene material and more in a different case.

Investigators say the suspect allegedly logged onto a website called MeetMe.com and wrote "I want girls under 13" hoping to acquire child porn.

When officers went to his home, the suspect allegedly "admitted creating and using numerous social media accounts to speak to younger girls...as well as trade pictures of child pornography."

According to court records, the suspect worked as a staff sergeant with the Air National Guard.

The suspect posted bond following his criminal charges in Pottawatomie County.

After his second arrest last week in Oklahoma County, he once again was able to post bond.
