Trail man faces child pornography charges

A 31-year-old man faces charges related to Possession of Child Pornography and Possession for the Purpose of Distribution.

A 31-year-old man was arrested at a Trail residence last week and faces charges related to Possession of Child Pornography and Possession for the Purpose of Distribution.

Those charges were forwarded to crown counsel after police officers of the Crime Reduction Unit and Trail Detachment GIS Section executed a search warrant on Jan. 23.

Police seized several computers at the residence.  The Crime Reduction Unit in partnership with the B.C. Integrated Exploitation (“ICE”) Unit identified a male suspect during an investigation, which commenced in the beginning of January.

The BC ICE unit is specialized in investigating Internet facilitated offences against children.

The male was released on several conditions including not to have any contact with anyone under the age of 16 years.

He will be making his first appearance in provincial court on March 6 in Rossland, BC.

RCMP said in its press release there is no evidence suggesting that any local children were involved in this investigation.

It added no further information will be released at this time.

The BC ICE unit encourages anyone with information about online child exploitation to help protect children by reporting their concerns to Cybertip.ca.
