A four-month police investigation into the possession of child pornography has resulted in the arrest of a 55-year-old man from Hafford, Sask.
Saskatchewan RCMP say the investigation began in February after they received “many complaints about a person accessing child pornography through a popular internet browser.”
On Tuesday, police arrested Kelly Beleznay at his home in Hafford and charged him with possessing and accessing child pornography.
Beleznay has a history of possessing child pornography.
In 2014, he was sentenced in Saskatoon provincial court to three years behind bars — two years for possessing child pornography, plus a year for making it available through the internet.
The Crown opposed his release on Wednesday. He remains in custody until June 5 for a bail hearing.
Hafford is located about 70 kilometres east of North Battleford.
