A 42-year-old Abbotsford man has been charged with child pornography offences following an investigation that eight months ago.

Sgt. Judy Bird said Abbotsford Police major crime detectives received information in April that an internet subscriber had uploaded child sexual abuse material online.

A search warrant was executed on Dec. 6 at an Abbotsford home, where various computer devices and cellphones were seized.

Subsequent search warrants were acquired, and evidence of child exploitation material was located, Bird said.

– not possessing or using any electronic device capable of accessing the internet;

– not contacting or communicating with any person known to be involved in the sexual exploitation of children or in trading or possessing child sexual exploitation materials; and
