LONDON, ONT. -- A 28-year-old London man has been charged with accessing child pornography following an overseas tip from police and a raid on a home earlier this week.
Authorities in Germany contacted London police in March about crypto-currency transactions involving child porn.
On Wednesday, police executed a search warrant on a Saddy Avenue home and seized a large number of computers and electronic devices.
Officers also found 11.85 grams of crystal meth worth almost $1200, magic mushrooms worth over $200, two hydromorphone pills and numerous digital scales.
A 24-year-old London man has been charged with accessing child porn as well as possession and drug trafficking. A 28-year-old London man is also jointly charged with drug offences.
The pair will appear in court Aug. 24.
Police continue to investigate.
