Bashaw RCMP in association with the Northern Alberta Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit has located and arrested a local man.
The detachment was made aware of the investigation in January but by Thurs. Feb. 27 they had garnered enough evidence to charge and arrested the adult male.
He was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.
“Through investigation, evidence was gathered that supported the request and authorization of a judicial authorization which was subsequently executed at the residence,” said Bashaw RCMP Staff Sgt. Bruce Holliday.
A number of items were seized in support of the charges.
The matter will be seen before Stettler Provincial Court later this month.
A name cannot be released as it may reveal the victims and/or children in association with the situation.
