Police arrested a 62-year-old man on child pornography charges Friday, weeks after he was first stopped by border officers as he returned to Canada following a volunteer mission to Nepal's orphanage.

Offices with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) first found evidence of child pornography as the man was returned to Canada in mid-December, Ottawa police said in a news release.

The Ottawa police said his child's exploitation unit identified five Nepali men under the age of 16.

Police said the man was arrested at Toronto International Airport on Friday and escorted off a plane destined for Panama City.

During a search of the people's home, police seized additional electronic devices from his home in Ottawa that allegedly contained images of child pornography.

The man is charged with two counts of hosted child pornography, one number luring a child under 18 and one counting child importing pornography.

Police said the investigation is ongoing and charges are still underway to be laid.

He is scheduled to show in court in Ottawa Saturday.
