St. Thomas #man, 43, faces #child pornography #charges

A 43-year-old St. Thomas man is facing child pornography charges after a raid at a north-end home Wednesday morning.

St. Thomas police seized several electronic devices and took an unnamed man into custody around 8 a.m.

The man is charged with one count of possessing child pornography and one count of distributing of child pornography.

The technological crimes division, a branch of the St. Thomas police criminal investigation unit, launched late last year. The unit assists in child exploitation investigations and also helps police process data from computers and cell phones seized in investigations.

The internet Child Exploitation Unit already successfully prosecuted four cases to date.
