Explicit photos land 59yo man in WA court

A 59-year-old Christmas Island man has faced a Perth court accused of taking sexually explicit photographs of a young girl.

Stuart James Finch faced Perth Magistrates Court on Wednesday after federal police allege "a substantial amount of abusive material, including sexualised images of several young girls" was found on electronic devices at his home.

He has been charged with separate counts of producing, possessing and involving a child in exploitation material.

Australian Federal Police officers launched an investigation last week after being contacted with concerns about his behaviour.

Police have not ruled out further charges.

Finch has been granted bail and will return to court on November 29.
