(Scroll down for video) The younger brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested for possessing child pornography.

Police have been searching for 59-year-old Bruce Douglas Paddock of North Hollywood, California, since the beginning of the month, but were unable to locate him.

This changed after Stephen carried out the mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While investigating the shooting, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) received a tip about Bruce’s whereabouts.

He was tracked down at an assisted living facility, where he was awaiting surgery for spinal stenosis.

Bruce had been under investigation for child pornography after police found more than 600 images of child pornography on his computer. Some of them were from children under the age of 12.

The computer was handed over to police by a Sun Valley auto repair shop, where Bruce had been squatting. When he was ordered to leave the premises, Bruce left the computer behind.

Bruce was taken out of the assisted living facility in a wheelchair.

He is being held at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Metropolitan Detention Center. His bail was set at $60,000.
