An eight-month long investigation by Saskatchewan’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit has led to charges against a Meadow Lake man.
The 23-year-old was arrested Thursday on 11 charges including Internet luring, sexual interference, and making and distributing child pornography.
Police reported on Friday that the victims were two children under the age of 14, one Canadian and one American. Both are now safe.
RCMP said the investigation began in August of 2015, with some of the offences believed to date back as far as 2012. Police in Colorado were also involved in the investigation.
The accused’s name is not being released in order to protect the identities of the alleged victims. He will remain in custody pending a court appearance in Meadow Lake on Monday.
The ICE unit is made up of officers from the RCMP as well as the Prince Albert, Saskatoon and Regina police services.
