On Wednesday February 16, 2022, the Barrie Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE) arrested and charged a 36-year old male from Barrie with Possession of Child Pornography, Accessing Child Pornography and Distribution of Child Pornography.
The accused, who has been held for a bail hearing, used social media platforms to facilitate these offences and engaged in numerous chats to obtain photos of people who identified under the age of 18. As part of this investigation, computer devices were seized for forensic analysis.
This project has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of the Solicitor General.
