A 21-year-old Ottawa man faces two counts of possession of child pornography after city police got a tip in March from the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre.
The internet child exploitation unit launched an investigation into information that an Ottawa resident was suspected of having the material, the Ottawa Police Service said.
The unit executed a search warrant on McArthur Avenue near the Vanier Parkway Wednesday.
The man was scheduled to appear in court later in the day.
City police suggest families visit the Canadian Centre for Child Protection at protectchildren.ca for more on preventing the abuse and exploitation.
