Anne Arundel County man repeatedly raped kids, produced child porn, police say

- The purchase of a storage locker during an auction in Anne Arundel County revealed a man had repeatedly raped children and produced thousands of child pornography photos and videos, according to officials.

Maryland State Police said their investigation was launched in late March after they were contacted by a man who purchased a storage locker during an auction in Anne Arundel County and discovered what he believed to be child pornography.

Investigators responded and said they found thousands of photographs of child pornography and numerous electronic devices that included hard drives, DVDs and VHS tapes.

Pictures of a nude girl were recovered and the same girl was seen on VHS tapes being sexually assaulted by a man, later identified as 55-year-old Glenn Ranger of Severn, according to police. Authorities said Ranger was identified as the person who had rented the storage locker.

Detectives said the assaults began when the victim was 16 years old and continued for six to eight years. Investigators stated they also found tapes of a boy, who was about 6 to 8 years old, being sexually assaulted by Ranger.

Detectives said they believe the sexual assaults were captured on a hidden camera in a bedroom at a home Ranger previously lived at in Anne Arundel County.

Ranger was taken into custody in Dundalk where officials said he had been living for the past month. He has been charged with three counts each of second-degree rape, second-degree sex offense, third-degree sex offense, and fourth-degree sex offense.  He was also charged with one count each of sexual abuse of a minor, sexual abuse of a minor with a continuing course of conduct, production of child pornography, and possession of child pornography. Officials said additional charges were pending.

Investigators said they identified and contacted the female victim, who is now an adult. Detectives said they were working to identify and contact other victims. Anyone who has information about Ranger or who may have been a victim was urged to call the Maryland State Police at (410) 819-4780.
