CALGARY - A four-month child pornography sting by Alberta law enforcement response teams has led to charges against 10 men in southern Alberta.

Police in Calgary and Lethbridge, along with RCMP, executed 13 search warrants throughout the area starting last December.

They seized over 300 computers and electronic devices containing thousands of child pornography photos and videos.

They say they targeted individuals sharing child porn images and videos across a variety of peer-to-peer file sharing networks.

The accused, who range in age from 22 to 65, face charges of possessing, accessing, and making available child pornography.

Police say they will be analyzing the seized electronics and more charges could be laid.
