U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized 250 images of alleged child pornography and erotica from a 44-year-old Calgary, Alberta man on June 20.

Andre Beaudoin arrived by automobile at the Peace Arch port of entry and declared his intended destination to be Las Vegas, Nevada when he was referred to the secondary examination area for inspection. CBP officers found a laptop and numerous DVDs some of which some had suspicious labeling suggesting they contained explicit sexual materials.

Beaudoin and the seized disks were turned over to special agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for further investigation and prosecution by state authorities.
