During the search, police located and seized electronics and other storage devices that have provided evidence to support charges for transmitting, accessing and possession of child pornography as well as unauthorized possession of firearms and breach of a prohibition order.

Police have charged 36-year-old Stettler resident Daniel Benjamin Penner with transmitting child pornography, accessing child pornography, possession of child pornography, unauthorized possession of a firearm and breach of a probation order.
