Authorities say that a man from Oyen is facing a series of child pornography charges relating to an incident involving an underage girl. Members of the ICE unit, along with the technological crimes and cyber crimes units search the man's home.

In late February, Oyen RCMP were notified after cellphone messages were found by a parent of a young female of conversations between her and an adult male.

Several electronic devices were seized and an initial investigation discovered a number of child pornography images. Technicians will conduct a full scan of the devices.

Donovan J. Otten, 43, has been charged with possession of child pornography and accessing child pornography.

Palmer was remanded into custody.

He appeared in Saskatoon Provincial Court on Wednesday and again on Friday where his matter was adjourned until March 23.
