Halifax Regional Police has charged a man with child pornography-related offences.
On October 14, investigators in the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division conducted a search of a residence in Halifax after receiving information from the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre (NCECC) that a person from Halifax had been downloading explicit images of children from the Internet. Investigators seized a number of electronic devices for forensic analysis from the residence.
Investigators have charged Sean Patrick Michael Walsh, 53, of Halifax, with one count each of accessing child pornography and possession of child pornography. He is scheduled to appear in Halifax Provincial Court at a later date.
Police ask anyone with information on child pornography to file a report by calling police at 902-490-5020 or by using Cybertip, Canada's tip line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children.
