    A 46-year-old Fairfax man has been indicted after allegedly attempting to cross the border into Canada while in possession of child porn videos.

    According to Dana Boente with the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Virginia, Padraic Collins attempted to enter Canada at the Landsdowne Port of Entry.

    Border agents found images of Collins engaging in sexual activity with an 11-year-old girl on his hand-held video camera and a laptop, according to the attorney's office. The sexual abuse allegedly occurred in Springfield, Va. 

    If convicted, Collins could spend a minimum of 15 years behind bars.
