RCMP in Penticton have arrested a man after conducting a child pornography investigation.
Over a three day period from October 28 to November 1, the Penticton South Okanagan Similkameen Regional Detachment’s General Investigation Section (GIS) executed two search warrants in relation to two separate child pornography investigations in the City of Penticton.
One man was arrested, and later released on numerous strict conditions, said Penticton RCMP Cst. James Grandy.
Both investigations were initiated as a result of information received from the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children.
“The RCMP takes child exploitation and pornography offences very seriously and will continue to investigate and arrest those who involve themselves in preying on children,” Grandy said.
“The RCMP works alongside other law enforcement agencies around the globe to help identify those taking part in these kinds of crimes against the vulnerable.”
The GIS section was assisted by both the BC Integrated Child Exploitation Unit and the Integrated Technological Crime Unit.
