Adelaide man charged with child sex offences

Detectives from the Joint Anti-Child Exploitation Team (a partnership between SAPOL’s Special Crimes Investigation Branch and the Australian Federal Police) have arrested and charged a 44-year-old man from the northern suburbs of Adelaide for possession of child exploitation material.

During simultaneous executions of search warrants at Salisbury Heights and Olympic Dam Village on Monday 13 August, a mobile device was seized, which police will allege contained child exploitation material, Australian Federal Police say.

The man was later charged with possession of child exploitation material, contrary to section 63A of the Criminal Law Consolidated Act 1935 (SA).

The man was granted bail and will reappear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 17 September 2018.
