London police have charged a 19-year-old London, Ont., man in connection with an investigation into child sexual abuse material dating back to mid-December 2021.

Police say an investigation by their internet child exploitation unit led to a search warrant being executed at a home in the city’s north end, and say an unspecified number of devices seized during the search revealed suspected child pornography.
