A 43-year-old Regina man is facing child pornography charges, and another related offence, after a six-month investigation.
On Jan. 11, the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit began investigating the activities of someone sharing child pornography through peer-to-peer networks.
Officers were later able to pinpoint the activity to a location in Regina.
On Wednesday, the ICE unit executed a search warrant at the location and found evidence of child pornography.
Police also seized computer devices, electronic storage and cellular phones, which will be the subject of further forensic examination.
Police said Andrew John Downing was arrested at the scene and held in custody.
Downing is charged with possessing child pornography, making child pornography available and breach of an undertaking.
He appeared in Provincial Court in Regina Thursday morning, where he was remanded until his next court appearance one week later.
The Saskatchewan ICE Unit is comprised of investigators from the RCMP, Regina Police Service, Saskatoon Police Service and Prince Albert Police Service. Their mandate is to investigate crimes involving the abuse and exploitation of children on the internet.
