Police say a man from the Halifax area is facing several child pornography-related charges.

The RCMP say they began an investigation on Tuesday after receiving information involving the posting of child pornography and the risk of a victim being in the local area.

Police say they executed a search warrant at a Timberlea home and arrested a man without incident.

A 34-year-old man is facing several charges, including making child pornography, possessing child pornography, making available child pornography, sexual assault, sexual interference, sexual exploitation of a person with a disability and unsafe storage of a firearm.

He was scheduled to appear in Halifax provincial court on Friday.
