Man arrested in NSW over child-like sex doll parts

A young man has been arrested and charged after Australian Border Force officers detected two child-like sex doll parts in an international air cargo consignment in Sydney earlier this year.

The discovery was referred to ABF investigators, who executed search warrants near Forster in NSW on October 14.

During the raids, officers located what is alleged to be child abuse material.

A 23-year-old man was taken into custody and and has since been charged with a number of offences, including the importation of child-like sex doll parts, and the possession of child abuse material.

ABF Commander Enforcement of Operations East, Justin Bathurst, said the ABF is “committed to pursuing those who attempt to import all forms of child abuse material.”

“It is deeply disturbing that people continue to try to possess these offensive items,” Commander Bathurst said.

“The ABF continues to work closely with our international and domestic law enforcement partners to prevent harm to children in Australia and overseas.”

The maximum penalty if convicted of importing child-like sex dolls is up to 10 years’ imprisonment and/or fines of up to $555,000.
