Cypriot police officers placed a man under arrest on child pornography charges after they were notified by Europol about a suspect who gained direct access to a live show.

According to police, a 45-year-old male in Nicosia was detained on an arrest warrant on Thursday in connection with a child porn investigation.

The suspect was detained on Thursday at his residence in Nicosia, where officers with a court warrant also searched the home and confiscated a number of electronic devices, including a mobile phone, two computers, and a USB storage device.

Police said an investigation into the case was launched after Europol contacted law enforcement authorities in Cyprus regarding an internet user’s online activity, which was flagged by a cyber crime unit.
