Emerald man charged with child exploitation offences - 24 August 2017

A 35-year-old Emerald man has been charged with child exploitation and firearm offences following an investigation by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC).

The CCC executed a search warrant at the man’s Emerald property today and he was charged at the Emerald Watch house with:

  • 1 x possessing child exploitation material contrary to section 228D of the Criminal Code;
  • 1 x use a carriage service to access child pornography material contrary to section 474.19 (1)(a)(i) and (aa)(b) of the Commonwealth Criminal Code 1995;
  • 1 x possess an unregistered firearm contrary to the Queensland Weapons Act 1990 and
  • 1 x possess ammunition contrary to the Queensland Explosives Act 1999.

The man was bailed and is expected to appear in the Emerald Magistrates Court on 26 September 2017.

The CCC was assisted in the arrest by members of the Queensland Police Service’s Emerald CIB.

As these matters are now before the court the CCC is unable to comment further.

The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
