A 25-year-old Saskatoon man is facing child pornography charges after an investigation by the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE).

The charges stem from an investigation that began in April and led to a search warrant for a home search on Thursday, a Saskatoon Police Service (SPS) news release said.

Police seized several electronic devices at the home, the release said.

Olafson has been released on several conditions until his next court appearance. Top Stories
