Kingston Police make fourth arrest in relation to child pornography this month
The Kingston Police Internet Child Exploitation Unit has made its fourth arrest of a local man in relation to child pornography in the month of November.
The case began on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, when images of suspected child pornography were uploaded to a Google Photos account. Google reported the images to the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children in the United States, and the IP address associated with the incident was determined to be based in Kingston. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP)’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre was notified.
The Kingston Police Internet Child Exploitation Unity took over the investigation on Thursday, Oct. 11, and obtained judicial authorization to identify the subscriber’s address. A search warrant was executed at that address on Thursday, Nov. 22.
The accused was present during the execution of the warrant, and was subsequently arrested. The 50-year-old local man is charged with possession of child pornography, and accessing child pornography.
