Porn-hunting federal agents in Washington have busted a creepy teacher with hundreds of perverted pictures and videos of young boys, authorities said.

Darrel Dwight, 52, was a long-time substitute, daycare worker and Boy Scouts leader when U.S. Postal inspectors served a search warrant at the Vancouver, Wash., home he shares with his mother, The Columbian reported.

Investigators searched Dwight’s pockets and discovered a pair of thumb drive computer storage devices stuffed with more than 600 twisted images of kids engaged in sex acts, according to court documents.

State prosecutors on Friday charged Dwight with 10 counts of possession of child porn.

The busted instructor’s mother defended her son on Friday when a TV reporter visited the family’s house.

Dwight was charged “only for possession of child pornography — no victims,” the mother told KOIN 6 through a closed screen door. “They act like there might be victims.”

Dwight’s recent orders from a known kiddie-porn distributor based in Toronto, Canada tipped off postal workers, authorities said.

He was held in Clark County Jail and is expected to be transferred to federal custody within a week, The Columbian reported.
