DENIED BAIL: A woman has been denied bail over two counts of child pornography related offences.

A GLEN Innes woman has been denied bail after fronting court on Wednesday in Armidale charged with two counts of allowing a child aged between 14 and 18 to be used for pornographic purposes.

The 47-year-old was arrested and taken to the Glen Innes Police Station on Tuesday morning after detectives executed the search warrant at a Glen Innes home.

The arrest comes after an ongoing investigation by the NSW Sex Crimes Squad’s Child Exploitation Internet Unit (CEIU).

In April 2016, detectives from the CEIU searched a home in Glen Innes, where they located and seized devices allegedly containing child abuse material.

A 44-year-old man was arrested and charged with child sex offences at this time.

He is currently before the courts.

The woman will re-appear at Armidale Local Court on October 5.

A statement released by local police said regular covert online investigations are conducted by the Child Exploitation Internet Unit and police in NSW work closely with their law-enforcement colleagues interstate and overseas.

Anyone with information about internet predators should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page:https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
