A 68-year-old Grimsby man has been arrested on multiple alleged child pornography charges.

Police started investigating suspicious internet activity in January which led to the search of a home in Grimsby.

As a result, Frank Wilkinson, 68, of Grimsby was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of child pornography, one count of accessing child pornography and one count of making child pornography available.

Wilkinson was held in custody pending a bail hearing Friday at the Robert S.K. Welch Courthouse in St. Catharines.

Suspicious Internet activities relating to child exploitation can be reported directly to police or online at, cybertip.ca.
