Police have charged a 33-year-old Hamilton man for allegedly possessing child pornography on his computer and mobile phone.

Officers with the Hamilton Police Service made the arrest at a home on Upper Ottawa Street on Thursday after receiving a tip from the federal government’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre.

In a Friday news release, police said the tip was about “an individual alleged to be uploading videos [and] images of child pornography to Cloud Storage.”

The accused appeared in court for a bail hearing on Thursday.

Investigators continue to examine the computers and mobile devices that were seized from the man’s home.
