South Shore man arrested on child porn charges

A Lunenburg County man has been arrested on child pornography charges.

The RCMP say a Birchy Head home was searched on Saturday, after a social media application notified law enforcement that child pornography was being shared on its service.

The man, whose name has not been released yet, has been charged with transmitting child pornography, making child pornography and possession of child pornography.

He's appearing in court Monday.
