Thunder Bay Police Cruiser (Winter)

(Cathy Alex)

A 46-year-old Thunder Bay man and OPP sergeant is facing child pornography charges, city police say.

Thunder Bay police's Cyber Crime Unit began an investigation last month, which resulted in officers obtaining a search warrant for the man's Mapleward Road residence.

When the search warrant was executed on Jan. 27, computers and electronic devices were seized from the home, and the man was arrested at the scene.

He will next appear in in court on March 4.
