A search of a Bedford business and a Halifax home have resulted in child pornography charges.

Halifax Regional Police began their investigation last Thursday.

Last Friday investigators from the Internet Child Exploitation Unit searched a business in the 1500 block of the Bedford Highway, seizing several electronic devices and arresting a man.

They also searched a home on Beech Street.

Geoffrey Puxon Barnes, 51, has been charged with one count of possession of child pornography and is scheduled to appear in court on January 23rd.

Police say their investigation continues.
