A 26-year-old Singaporean man was charged today in Australia with importing contraband after customs officials discovered a “child-like sex doll” on his way from China. 

The unnamed man was arrested Thursday in Perth, Western Australia, after a parcel scan at a Perth air cargo depot on Christmas Eve discovered “a silicone female child-like sex doll,” according to the Australian Border Force, or ABF. 

“Child-like sex dolls are an emerging form of child abuse material that the ABF is determined to prevent from crossing our border,” acting agency chief investigator Nicholas Walker said in a statement. “Dolls that are manufactured for a sexual purpose that depict a child under the age of 18 are classified as ‘objectionable goods’ and are prohibited from being imported into Australia.”

The statement said the man was in Australia on a student visa.

“Tackling child abuse material is an operational priority for the ABF as part of its role in protecting the border from individuals who may pose a threat to the community.”

He was arrested after the police obtained a warrant to search for him at his place of residence, it continued. 

He is presently free on bail and is due to appear Jan. 17 in court.

If found guilty of importing child abuse materials, he faces upward of 10 years and a fine of AU$525,000 (US$360,000).

The agency said Australia has been intercepting a growing number of such dolls in recent years. 

Their possession was criminalized in September, with violators facing up to 15 years in prison.

Chinese manufacturers have faced outrage in recent years for making and selling dolls that resemble children for sexual gratification. Australia banned them after the border force said it seized dozens of them last year. Most were smuggled from China and Japan, it said.
