The Barrie Police Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) conducted an investigation after receiving a report of an unknown suspect downloading several images of child pornography. Investigators learned the identity and residential address of the suspect and on March 29, 2022, a search warrant was executed at a north-west Barrie residence.
The search yielded child pornography on a computer device belonging to the accused. A 59-year-old male was arrested and transported to Barrie Police Headquarters where he was held pending a bail hearing. Several other computer devices belonging to the accused were seized for a complete forensic analysis. The accused was charged with Accessing Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography.
