A 58-year-old Petrolia man is facing several charges related to child pornography following an investigation conducted by Ontario Provincial Police.

The man was arrested as a result of an on-line undercover investigation by the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit, Technological Crime Unit, and Lambton County OPP.

On Wednesday, August 5, police executed a search warrant at a Petrolia residence. Police seized eight computers which they allege contained images of child pornography.

The Petrolia man is facing two counts of possession of child pornography, one count of making available child pornography, and one count of accessing child pornography.

Police say their investigation is on-going.
