Man charged with child porn after Winnipeg raid

  • Print

A 51-year-old Winnipeg man is facing child pornography charges after police raided his home on Tuesday.

Members of the Winnipeg Police Service, the internet child exploitation unit and the technology crimes unit executed a search warrant of the residence on the 400 block of Bannatyne Avenue Thursday, police said in a release.

Police said they were acting on a tip from the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre, which had launched an investigation "involving child abuse images," the release said.

Electronic items were seized, and the man turned himself into police.

The man, whose name police did not release, is facing charges that include importing/distributing child pornography, possessing child pornography and accessing child pornography. He has been released and will appear in court at a unspecified later date.

A forensic investigation is ongoing, police said.
