Child Predator Busted in New Caney

EAST MONTGOMERY COUNTY, March 8, 2014 – On Friday, around 8:45 p.m., Precinct 4 Deputy Constables arrested 49-year-old John Mark Tanner at his home located at 2180 Dunn Street in New Caney for state jail felony Improper Photography or Visual Recording.

An arrest warrant was obtained following an intense investigation lasting several months that revealed Tanner was taking advantage of young males who were in need of somewhere to stay or in otherwise desperate situations.

Tanner made video recordings of himself sexually assaulting the young men while they were unconscious due to drugs or alcohol and of the young men taking showers and other bathroom activities using a hidden camera.

Some of the victims were minors, some were of legal age. It does not appear any of the victims gave Tanner their consent. The youngest known victim is 15. However, the investigation shows Tanner’s illegal activities have been taking place for years, and continued investigation may reveal younger males were also victimized.

Investigators with the Precinct 4 Constable’s Office hope more victims will come forward. 

Tanner’s bond is set at $50,000.
