A 45-year-old Winnipeg man is facing child porn charges after city police were tipped off by officials in Germany.

Members of Winnipeg's Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) were contacted in September 2013 by German police, who said one of their investigations uncovered a Winnipegger in possession of child pornography.

The ICE members entered into a lengthy investigation and on Wednesday, investigators searched a home in the 1000 block of Isbister Street and arrested a man.

He is facing charges of possessing child pornography, accessing, distributing and making child pornography available.
