International investigation leads to arrest of Sudbury man

An international investigation has led to the arrest of a Sudbury man in connection to child pornography.

Greater Sudbury Police Constable Kaitlyn Dunn says in 2019, an international investigation into the purchasing of internet child exploitation materials using Bitcoin from a South Korean Child Pornography website resulted in the takedown of one of the largest child pornography websites on the Darknet.

She says information related to individuals living in Canada was sent to local police services by the RCMP so law enforcement agencies could initiate investigations into individuals living in their jurisdictions.

Dunn says on Tuesday, Sudbury police arrested a 28-year-old man and charged him with two counts of accessing child pornography and two counts of possession of pornography.

She says he is now in police custody and his name is not being released to protect the identity of potential victims.
