A 50-year-old Pictou, N.S. man is facing charges after police received a complaint that a 16-year-old boy was having sexual relations with a man.

The RCMP executed a search warrant at a Pictou home on Tuesday. They seized computers and other electronic equipment from the home and arrested a man without incident.

Richard Brian Nelson is facing charges of luring a child and permitting sexual activity within a residence.

He was released from custody on conditions and is due to appear in Pictou provincial court on May 25.
