In a statement to Northern Sound, Detective Inspector Richard Vasey from The Police Service of Northern Ireland's Child Internet Protection Team said, "A number of digital devices were seized following a search of Mr Boyle’s property, resulting in Mr Boyle being arrested and later charged for child abuse related offences.

"These searches are part of the continuing proactive work by the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Child Internet Protection Team, a dedicated unit staffed with officers trained specifically to deal with online offending and safeguard those who have been exploited.

"We use specialist technology to detect digital devices, to make it difficult for offenders to hide evidence from the police.
