On Thursday, March 9, 2023, members of the Barrie Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) executed a search warrant at a Barrie residence seizing numerous computer devices.
Following a forensic review, on Tuesday October 10, 2023, a 21-year-old Barrie man was arrested and is now facing charges of 2 counts of Accessing Child Pornography, 2 counts of Possession of Child Pornography, and one count of Distribution of Child Pornography.
The accused used the internet and social media platforms to upload images and videos of child pornography. He was held for bail and released later in the day with several conditions and a future court date.

The Barrie Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit is a partner within Ontario’s “Provincial Strategy” to protect children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the internet. This project has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
