Hawker man charged following investigation into alleged child abuse material

ACT Policing executed a warrant at a Hawker residence on Wednesday following an investigation by the Joint Anti-Child Exploitation Team.

Police received information on June 17 regarding the uploading and transmission of child sexual abuse material via social media.

During the search, child abuse material was allegedly found on Raymond James Choi Hurt's mobile phone and multiple storage devices.

The 33-year-old fronted the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday morning, charged with possession of child abuse material and using a carriage service to access child abuse material.

The court heard Mr Hurt allegedly accessed the material between June 22 and June 25 this year.

Mr Hurt did not enter pleas to the charges and did not apply for bail. He is due to appear in court again on August 20.

Members of the public who have any information about people involved in the possession or sharing of child exploitation material are urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
