A man will appear in court next month after being charged with the production and possession of child abuse material at a rented storage facility in Ballina.
On 19 September 2017, a 45-year-old man rented a storage space at a facility in Ballina.
After the man defaulted on his rental payments, the owners entered the premises to clean it out.
As the space was emptied a quantity of child abuse material was allegedly discovered.
The items and a quantity of documents were handed to police.
Officers from Richmond Police District commenced investigations into the material.
Today (Tuesday 24 April 2018), the 45-year-old man attended Tweed Heads Police Station where he was arrested and taken into custody.
The man was later charged with the production and possession of child abuse material.
He was granted conditional bail to appear at Ballina Local Court on Thursday 17 May 2018.
