A 44-year-old Port McNeill man is facing child porn charges after his arrest late last month.

On March 29 Port McNeill RCMP executed a search warrant on the residence of a male in relation to the possession and distribution of child pornography.

A male suspect was arrested, without incident, during the execution of the search warrant.

Port McNeill RCMP  said they were alerted to the suspect’s possession and distribution of child pornography through the efforts of the Toronto Police Service Child Exploitation Section and the RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation Unit.

The investigation is ongoing and evidence suggests the offences alleged were specific to technology mediums and did not involve local children.

The suspect has since been released with a court appearance date and has been placed on numerous conditions, specifically relating to the protection of children and youth.

“This case demonstrates how connected Canadian law enforcement agencies are in protecting children, and apprehending those allegedly involved in their victimization,” said Sgt. Phil Lue, commander of the Port McNeill detachment. “We have no evidence to suggest that any of our local children were victimized, but that does not diminish our response.”

RCMP are asking anyone with information relating to this incident, contact them at 250-956-4441.
