On the morning of Tuesday, June 25, 2019, members of the ICE Unit assisted by members of the Tactical Unit conducted a search warrant at a Greater Sudbury residence where evidence of Child Pornography was located on computers seized from the home.

A 28-year old man from Greater Sudbury was arrested and charged with the following offences:

  • Access Child Pornography – Section 163.1(4.1) of the Criminal Code of Canada
  • Make Available Child Pornography x3 – Section 163.1(3) of the Criminal Code of Canada
