Man arrested with child porn images

2016-12-08 06:01

OVER 300 images of child pornography were found in a 56-year-old man’s possession at his Uvongo home on Thursday morning, this while the world campaigns for no violence against women and children.

The man appeared in Ramsgate court shortly after police searched his home in a crime intelligence-driven operation, and arrested him.

The case was postponed to Thursday for a bail application.

The man remains in police cus- tody.

Margate Crime Intelligence and members from Durban Family, Child and Sexual Offences (FCS) unit - Serial and Electronic Crime Investigation section investigated the man, which led to his arrest.

“The man was found to be in possession of over 300 photographs, depicting minor children in the nude,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

“Anyone who has information regarding similar cases, should immediately contact the nearest police station for further investigation by FCS,” she added.
