Windsor and Tecumseh men arrested in province-wide child porn probe

Two Windsorites and one Tecumseh man have been arrested in a province-wide child porn sweep.

Police executed 99 search warrants across Ontario. They arrested 60 people on a total of 249 charges. Three of the suspects arrested are young people who can’t be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Investigators have also identified 14 child victims. None of them appear to be from the Windsor area.

“This investigation highlights the pervasiveness of Internet-based dangers of child luring, sexual exploitation and abuse,” said Insp. Scott Naylor, manager of the OPP Child Sexual Exploitation Unit. “Children, teens and parents also have a responsibility to educate themselves to ensure their Internet and social networking experiences can be as rewarding as they want it to be and as safe as it needs to be. Because every child matters, everywhere.”

The charges include sexual assault, possession of child pornography, make available child pornography, distribution of child pornography, making child pornography and accessing child pornography. Police also seized drugs and prohibited weapons.  (more...)
