A Moun­tie posted in a re­mote fly-in com­mu­nity in north­ern Saskatchewan has been charged with ac­cess­ing and pos­sess­ing child pornog­ra­phy.

RCMP said they be­gan in­ves­ti­gat­ing the of­fi­cer sta­tioned in Fond-du-Lac in Septem­ber.

Staff Sgt. Ron Weir of the prov­ince’s In­ter­net Ex­ploita­tion Unit said of­fi­cers had been con­duct­ing an in­ter­nal po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion into file-shar­ing and were trac­ing IP ad­dresses when they iden­ti­fied the fel­low Moun­tie as a sus­pect.
