On Wednesday May 3rd, 2023, members of the Barrie Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit (I.C.E) executed a search warrant seizing numerous computer devices. As a result, on Friday May 12th 2023 a 70-year-old Barrie man was arrested and is now facing charges of Accessing Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography.
The accused used the internet to access and upload 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.
