An investigation into an Internet luring complaint has led to local police assisting in charges being filed against an Ontario man.
The Prince Albert Internet Child Exploitation Unit (I.C.E) received the complaint last month. They then contacted the Ontario Provincial Police Child Sexual Exploitation Unit, who traced the accused to Six Nations, Ont.
On Feb. 19, a force comprised of officers from the Six Nations Police Service, the Ontario Provincial Police Child Exploitation Unit and the Hamilton Police Service - Technical Crime Unit served search warrants at a Six Nations residence.
During the search, five computer devices were seized.
The accused, Kaalan Smith-Turner, 20, of Six Nations, Ont., is charged with one count of Internet luring, one count of extortion, and one count of invitation to sexual touching.
He is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brantford, Ont., on March 27.
