London man facing six child-pornography related charges
A 44-year-old London man is facing six charges in connection with a child-pornography investigation that started last month.
On November 28th, London Police Service received information from the U.S. National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children through the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre and the St. Thomas Police Service that an individual within London had accessed child pornography through an internet server.
The LPS Internet Child Exploitation Unit investigated the information and on December 13th, officers attended an address on Noel Avenue to execute a search warrant.
London police say Chris Herbert McCaw, 44, of London is charged with the following Criminal Code of Canada offences:
- Unlawfully possess child pornography X 4;
- Import/sell/distribute, etc. child pornography; and
- Print/publish/possess to publish child pornography.
“This investigation is another demonstration of how the LPS partners with multiple agencies as part of the Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation to keep children within our community and around the world safe,” said D/Sgt Glenn Hadley of the London Police Service.
The accused was scheduled to appear in London court yesterday in relation to the charges.
London Police Service is a member of the Provincial Strategy to protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation on the internet. The Strategy has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
