24-year-old arrested over child pornography images

A 24-year-old was arrested on Tuesday for obtaining and possessing child pornography, police said after they were tipped off by Europol.

According to police, the suspect was found to be sending two archives with images of child pornography on a social media platform to another user.

Police then received a court-ordered warrant to search his home, where they found two mobile phones and a laptop that they seized as evidence and took for scientific evaluation.

The suspect was arrested and placed in custody for questioning.

The police’s electronic crime unit is continuing their investigations.
