SICKENING child-like sex dolls uncovered in a Golden Bay home should be destroyed, according to Mandurah detectives.

Brian Douglas Bellette, 77, appeared in Mandurah Magistrate’s Court on Friday, where he pleaded guilty to producing child exploitation material.

When detectives searched his home on May 21, they seized four 2ft dolls, which were found on a couch in a living room.

Sen Sgt Troy said the dolls were manufactured as normal dolls and were dressed, but had been modified in a sexualised manner with breasts and vaginas.

At the time, Bellette claimed the modifications were “an artform” but detectives will ask the magistrate to order the dolls be destroyed.

“To have adapted the dolls was strange and inappropriate and we called it into question,” Sen Sgt Troy said.

Bellette appeared anxious and was breathing heavily when he waited for his case to be heard in court and was asked to leave the court by security.

When he returned, he said he had taken Diazepam – a drug with a calming affect – and was having trouble breathing.

Magistrate Anne Longden ordered Bellette undergo a psychological assessment.

He is due to be sentenced on September 27.
