A Longview, Texas man who had previously run twice for a seat on Longview's City Council has been arrested on a charge of child pornography.

Bernd Niels "Dutch" Deblouw is the owner of an info-tech biz in Longview called Longview I.T. In the past, he'd also been a firefighter in Longview, Texas.

According to the Longview News-Journal, "Deblouw earlier this year filed to run for the District 5 Longview City Council seat that was being vacated after Councilman David Wright chose not to seek a third term. Deblouw ran against Michelle Gamboa, who won the seat in the May election, and local attorney Jose Sanchez."

Deblouw had also run back in 2016 for District 5 seat and was also unsuccessful in that race.

The arrest of 37-year-old Bernd Niels “Dutch” Deblouw occurred on Sunday, August 14.

Longview Police shared in a recent post on their Facebook page that Deblouw was arrested "in the 5100 block of W. Marshall Avenue for possession of child pornography, a second-degree felony."

He was booked into Gregg County Jail and "charged with possession with intent to promote child pornography," according to a report from CBS 19.
