A 38 year old Hamilton man is facing child pornography charges after an investigation involving local police and two national agencies.
The Internet Child Exploitation unit of Hamilton Police launched the investigation after a tip from the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre and the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.
It concerned images of child pornography which had been uploaded to Skype messenger along with the Chatstep app.
All the information was traced back to a Hamilton address and Hamilton police executed a search warrant there.
38 year old Justin Switzer is facing two counts of possession of Child Pornography and two of making child pornography available to others.
Investigators want to hear from anyone who may have additional information about this case.
That can be done through Hamilton Police or Crime Stoppers.
