Following a search on Thursday, Tasmania Police have arrested a Longford man, 24, charging him with one count of possess child exploitation material, as well as one charge of possess a prohibited firearm to which a firearms licence may not be issued.
The man was bailed to appear in the Launceston Magistrates Court on August 11.
Detective Inspector Craig Joel encouraged parents to have conversations about online safety with children from an early age.
"A general shift in a child's mood or behaviour or computer usage - perhaps later in the evening - may be a sign an on-line predator is encouraging a child to keep a secret, or making them feel ashamed," he said.
If you believe a child is in imminent danger, contact Tasmania Police on Triple-0.
