MEDICINE HAT, Alta. — Police have charged a 27-year-old Alberta man after finding a large collection of child sex abuse videos.

The Internet Child Exploitation team says it began to investigate after getting a tip from German police involving the accused's peer-to-peer Internet activities.

The team consists of members of the RCMP and Calgary, Medicine Hat and Lethbridge police.

Robert Jeffrey Williams, of Medicine Hat was arrested Tuesday at Calgary International Airport.

He's charged with possessing, accessing, and making available child pornography.

Williams has been released on several conditions and is scheduled to appear in Medicine Hat court on Oct. 14.

Police say a search warrant was executed at a home in Medicine Hat on Sept. 3 and evidence was seized.

A forensic analysis of the computers and electronic devices seized is underway, but investigators say so far they've found "an extensive collection of videos depicting extreme child sex abuse.''

Police don't believe any of the victims are from Alberta.
