The News (New Glasgow) - - PICTOU COUNTY -

TREN­TON – A33-year-old Tren­ton man was ar­rested Thurs­day in re­la­tion to a child pornog­ra­phy in­ves­ti­ga­tion. At ap­prox­i­mately 9:15 a.m., New Glas­gow Re­gional Po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant at a McLaren Street res­i­dence in Tren­ton as part of a child pornog­ra­phy in­ves­ti­ga­tion. As a re­sult of the search po­lice said they have seized a num­ber of items in­clud­ing a lap­top and tablet. The 33-year-old man was ar­rested at the res­i­dence and charged with Pos­ses­sion of Child Pornog­ra­phy and Breach of an Un­der­tak­ing. He was later re­leased and will be ap­pear­ing in Pro­vin­cial Court in Pic­tou on Mon­day. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing. In Nova Sco­tia, it is manda­tory for cit­i­zens to re­port sus­pected child pornog­ra­phy. This means that any­one who en­coun­ters child pornog­ra­phy ma­te­rial or record­ings must re­port it to the po­lice. Fail­ing to re­port sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity and ma­te­ri­als could re­sult in penal­ties sim­i­lar to fail­ure to re­port child abuse set out in the Chil­dren and Fam­ily Ser­vices Act.
