A Winnipeg man is facing a lengthy list of child pornography and sexual exploitation charges after he allegedly uploaded sexual abuse imagery to social media.

Police said the investigation began later last year after their internet child exploitation unit (ICE) was tipped off to the images.

The suspect, 69-year-old Kenneth Scott Coffey, was initially arrested at a Pritchard Avenue home in February for accessing and possessing child porn. At the time, police seized a pair of cell phones.
