An Orana man has been charged with possessing, distributing and producing child exploitation material after Australian Federal Police officers raided his home last Thursday. Two neighbours said they heard loud bangs in the early hours of Thursday morning. “When we got up at around 8.30am, the police had a man out the front of the house and they wouldn’t let him back in,” one neighbour said. According to the witness, three young children were also outside the home. “Probably by around 10am a woman had turned up and was given the kids,” she said. “They seemed very happy to see her ... two lady detectives went in to the house and must have brought their belongings out and they were then bundled in the car and taken away.” About 1.30pm several AFP officers were outside the property with big bags of evidence, including a crossbow. Later that afternoon, a man was brought out of the house, put in an unmarked car and taken away. A neighbour said a couple had lived at the property with three young children. She said she often heard “yelling and screaming” coming from the house. A WA police spokeswoman said as a result of a search warrant being executed at the property, the 41-year-old man had been charged with possess, distribute and produce child exploitation material. He is due to appear before Albany Magistrate’s Court on April 2. The spokeswoman said investigations were ongoing.
