Mounties have arrested a Digby County woman and charged a man from the U.K. in a child pornography case.

Meteghan RCMP arrested the 40-year-old woman last week.

“She faces charges of making child pornography and making arrangements to commit offences of sexual interference and sexual assault,” said a police news release.

The woman was released on conditions and is slated to return to Yarmouth provincial court Jan. 4.

Halifax Regional Police arrested Leon Paul Fraser, 44, of Algarkirk, an English village in Lincolnshire, on Oct. 5 at Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

“He has been charged with making child pornography and making arrangements to commit offences of sexual interference and sexual assault,” said the release.

Fraser is in custody. He’s scheduled to appear Thursday in Dartmouth provincial court.

“In Nova Scotia it is mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography,” said the release. “This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Child and Family Services Act.”
