Agro's Dave on porn charge

THE man behind children's television favourite Agro remembers “Constable Dave” as a colleague who put police in a good light.

Jamie Dunn came to fame as the voice of the much-loved carpet puppet that became a household name on the 1980s children's show Wombat.

One of the show's series regular presenters was David Warren Moore, 55, who was convicted yesterday of possessing child pornography.

Moore pleaded guilty to possessing video footage which contained “vintage” footage of boys aged 12 to 15 frolicking naked while “climbing rocks and in boats''.

The footage was seized by police from his Brisbane business 18 months ago.

Moore will be sentenced in the Brisbane District Court today.

Mr Dunn, of Coolum, said “Constable Dave” did a lot of good for the police service.

“He was a very likeable bloke although occasionally you would go ‘hang on',” Mr Dunn said. “But I think that was a case of perhaps him getting swept away with the celebrity moment.”

Mr Dunn said he never witnessed any behaviour by Moore related to that of which he has been convicted.

“He conducted himself in a manner the police department could only have had the utmost respect for,” Mr Dunn said.

“Constable Dave did a lot of good. It is sad that it will reflect on Wombat because it was something that people grew up with.”
