Waterloo Regional Police have announced a pair of arrests in connection with child pornography cases in the region.

Police say the first investigation began in April after they received complaints from the National Child Exploitation Co-ordination Centre about a man allegedly uploading child pornography.

After an investigation, police say officers searched a home on Cambridge on Thursday.
