An Osoyoos man has been arrested for possession of child pornography.

RCMP received information from the Child Explotation Unit and Ontario police that an internet account from Osoyoos was accessing child pornography

Two weeks ago, police arrested a man at a local motel where he was living.

37 year old Shawn Barry Titus is charged with possession of child pornography and for failing to comply with a prohibition order.

Investigators continue to examine evidence and to date have made no link to any local victims.

"The team work of the agencies mentioned shows the dedication of police to protecting children from harm and to vigorously pursue those who access, distribute, or create child pornography," said Sgt Jason Bayda.
