A former B.C. Mountie has been arrested for allegedly producing and possessing child pornography.

The officer, who was not named, was immediately suspended and resigned within 24 hours of the arrest, the RCMP said in a release Tuesday.

"This alleged behaviour is deplorable," Chief Supt. Ray Bernoties said in the release.

The officer will not be subject to any discipline under the RCMP Act because he is now considered a private citizen.

Police have recommended two charges, one count of each producing child porn and possessing it. The former Mountie is due in court Feb. 20.
