Police have charged a 26-year-old man with possessing child pornography after searching a home near Murwillumbah yesterday, where they also found a cache of firearms.

Police are still investigating the ownership of the firearms.

The man has been granted strict conditional bail, to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday, 25 January.
