A man whose child porn collection was discovered after he reported his car stolen has avoided time behind bars.

Craig Ronald Luscombe had 469 images stored on two USB sticks that were found in his vehicle after it was recovered by police in early 2014.

The 31-year-old was sentenced to an intensive correction order on Tuesday after pleading guilty in the Brisbane District Court.
