The younger brother of a convicted sex offender was busted for destroying evidence that may have implicated his brother in another sex crime, said a police source.

Myer Zimmer, 37, was arrested on Friday after he allegedly trashed clothing that police believe was evidence in an investigation into his older brother, David Zimmer.

The big bro, 40, was arrested on January 2, after allegedly photographing a nine-year-old female neighbor inside his Borough Park building.

A registered sex offender, the elder Zimmer was collered in March 1999, after he sexually abused a 10- year-old girl, according to the NY State Sex Offender Registry.

He is not supposed to have contact with children, said cops.

On Thursday, cops released David Zimmer's photo asking parents of children who may have had contact with him in the past to come forward.

Police did not specify the circumstances of the current investigation in which they say Myer Zimmer interfered.

He was charged with tampering with physical evidence and hindering prosecution, said police.
