Sex offender photographed girls at Costco

SEATTLE — A registered sex offender who moved from Texas to Washington state has been arrested for downloading child pornography and investigators found pictures of girls he took while working at a Costco.

KOMO News reported that Gregory Sean O’Neall was arrested Thursday by federal agents.

Authorities say that they had been tracking O’Neall’s online activity. They accuse him of using a Russian-based website to post 112 pictures of girls who had visited a Costco in Federal Way under album names such as “More Costco Cuties.”

Charging papers say that O’Neall was a contractor working at Costco handing out food samples.
