Wayne Missons, from Masstown, was charged with:

  • possession of child pornography
  • luring a child
  • inciting bestiality
  • transmitting child pornography
  • making sexually explicit material available to a child

Missons was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in court on July 10.
