WINNIPEG -- Officers with the Winnipeg Police Service have charged a 26-year-old man with 22 offences related to child pornography and luring.
According to police, investigators with the Internet Child Exploitation department started to investigate child sexual abuse images related to an IP address in Winnipeg in October 2020.

Police said they determined that the IP address was linked to a single-family home in east Winnipeg.
Officers obtained a search warrant for the home and analyzed the electronic devices, which led them to lay the charges.
