REGINA – Canada Border Services Agency officers in Saskatchewan seized suspected child pornography in two separate incidents last month.

On Jan. 7 at the North Portal land border, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officers examined a Manitoba man’s cellphone and found images of suspected child pornography.

Then on Jan. 25, officers examined the electronics of a Saskatchewan man and found suspected obscene images and suspected child pornography images.

Both cases were referred to the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit.

Another incident that involved child pornography was on Jan. 5 when officers arrested a Canadian man at the North Portal crossing with an outstanding warrant for manufacturing child pornography and sexual assault. He was transferred over to RCMP.

At the same border entry, CBSA seized a flashlight that doubled as a prohibited stun gun on Jan. 3.

Thirteen overcapacity magazines were seized on Jan. 13, also at North Portal.
