Mt Pleasant man arrested for allegedly possessing child exploitation material

A 41-YEAR-OLD Mt Pleasant man has been arrested on allegations of possessing child exploitation material.

The arrest comes after a Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team (JACET) investigation into electronic devices seized during a recent execution of search warrants.

Police searched both the man’s personal residence and a business premises where he works with children.

It will be alleged he had in his possession a number of images classified as child exploitation material.

The man was arrested on Thursday night at Perth Airport where he had just arrived on an inbound flight.

Based on the assessment of the material that is alleged to have been located in the man’s possession, no link has been established between the material and the children he works with.

The accused has been refused bail and is due to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.
