A 53-year-old Halifax man has been charged with child pornography-related offences.

Halifax Regional Police say the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre told them someone in Halifax had been downloading explicit images of children.

That led to the search of a Halifax home where electronic devices were seized for forensic analysis.

Sean Patrick Michael Walsh will appear in court at a later date to face charges of accessing child pornography and possession of child pornography. 

Anyone with information on child pornography is asked to call police at 902-490-5020 or submit a tip through Cybertip, Canada's tip line for reporting online sexual exploitation of children.
