Man who allegedly worked at Milton daycare charged in child porn investigation

Peel Regional Police have charged a man who allegedly worked at a Milton daycare with accessing and possessing child pornography.

On Tuesday, parents at the Milton Community Resource Centre received an email notifying them that a staff member at the facility had been charged with possession of child pornography.

The executive director of the centre, Rebecca Barrows Vrankulj, told CTV Toronto that the centre became aware of the police investigation after being contacted by Peel police and the Children’s Aid society.

In the statement, Barrows Vrankulj said that the news was ‘deeply troubling’ to the daycare centre.

“The centre assures everyone, especially parents, that we are cooperating with police to assist them in their investigation,” the statement reads.

The daycare did not identify the accused or his specific position in their statement, but assured parents that the employee has been removed from the property and will not return.

The Ontario Provincial Police have taken over the case but have yet to release details pertaining to the investigation.

According to the Brampton courthouse, Steven Campbell was charged with one count of possession of child pornography.  (more...)
