New Glasgow man charged with possession and transmitting child pornography


A 22-year-old New Glasgow man has been charged with possessing and transmitting child pornography.

The RCMP say investigators had received information from the National Child Exploitation Crime Centre last December.

As a result of the investigation, a search warrant was executed at a residence in New Glasgow on June 15th.

Alexander Holmes was arrested at the home and is charged with two counts of possession of child pornography.

He also faces singles counts of accessing and transmitting child pornography.

Holmes has since been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in Pictou Provincial Court on August 22nd.
