A St. John's man has been charged with distributing child pornography.

A six-month investigation by Newfoundland and Labrador's Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit — made up of members of both the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police — resulted in a search Tuesday of a St. John's home, where a 33-year-old man was arrested and charged.

The man was held in custody for a court appearance Wednesday.

A press release from the unit says the investigation is ongoing and that more charges are pending.
