Child exploitation material found at home: police

THE Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has charged an Ipswich man with 14 offences for allegedly accessing and sharing child exploitation material.

Officers from the CCC's criminal paedophilia team, Cerberus, and the forensic computing unit, with assistance from the Ipswich Child Protection Investigation Unit, executed a search warrant on a property at Ebbw Vale yesterday morning.

It is alleged they found computers and storage devices containing child exploitation material.

The CCC will allege the 28-year-old man used two separate accounts to access and share child exploitation material with other users in closed online networks.

The man was charged with four counts of possessing child exploitation material, one of using a carriage service to access child pornography material and nine of using a carriage service to transmit, make available, publish, distribute, advertise or promote child pornography material.

He is due to appear in Ipswich Magistrates Court on October 9.

The CCC's investigation is ongoing.
