A 25-year-old Winnipeg man is in police custody after a tip from New Zealand authorities on suspicion child pornography images were shared from a local IP address.
Police say the New Zealand Digital Child Exploitation Team notified them on Thursday that between September 25-26, several child sexual abuse images were shared in a chat room from someone in Winnipeg.
Police executed a search warrant at a home in the East Elmwood area the same day. A man was later arrested at a residence in the Burrows area.
Iain Alexander Tod faces several child pornography charges, including sexual assault and sexual interference.
He remains in custody.
