A man faces a child pornography charge after a search of a Halifax residence last month.

On April 24, police began an investigati­on after receiving information regarding online child pornog­raphy. The pornograp­hy involved text mes­sage conversations and private message conversations on a so­cial media site about sexual activity in­volving children. The conversations were between a 45-year-o­ld Halifax man and other adults who noti­fied authorities.

Just after 9 a.m. on May 17, 2017, inves­tigators in the Inte­rnet Child Exploitat­ion (ICE) Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Divi­sion conducted a sea­rch of a residence in the 5600 block of Atlantic Street and seized a number of electronic devices for forensic analysis. A man inside the re­sidence was arrested without incident.

 

Forty-five-year-old Robyn Trent Boswick of Halifax appeared in Halifax Provincial Court on May 17 to face one count of making child pornogra­phy.
