On Wednesday, January 11, 2023, the Barrie Police Service Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit arrested a 34-year-old Barrie male after a yearlong investigation. The male is now facing charges of Accessing Child Pornography, Possession of Child Pornography and Making Child Pornography Available.

The accused used social media (SnapChat) and other forms of communication to access and share images and videos of child pornography. The male was held for bail and released the same day with several conditions and a future court date.

Tips on how to stay safe on social media are available on our website: BarriePolice.ca/safety-crime-prevention/.

This project has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of the Solicitor General.
