Vancouver man faces child porn charge

A 45-year-old Vancouver man has been charged with possession of child pornography after his computer laptop was searched following his arrival at the Vancouver International Airport in March.

Othes T. Prosser made his first appearance in Richmond provincial court on Tuesday.

He was pulled aside after arriving at the airport on March 27.

Canada Border Services agents searched the contents of his laptop computer and found images that they suspected were child pornography.

They then called in the Richmond RCMP.

Prosser was scheduled to make his next court appearance today (Thursday).
