SASKATOON – A Saskatoon man who was swept-up in a Canada-wide operation is facing more child pornography charges.
Russell Dennis Wolfe, 55, was originally charged with accessing, possessing and making available child pornography as part of Operation Snapshot III.
Further investigation and examination of the evidence gathered has lead to six more charges against Wolfe: three counts of making child pornography, two counts of sexual assault and one count of breaching his release conditions.
Wolfe made a court appearance Friday morning in Saskatoon provincial court on the new charges. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance on July 15.
Police are now trying to identify 14 potential young female victims who may have been in contact with Wolfe.
Anyone with information that may be able to assist them is asked to contact members of the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit, Saskatoon police at 306-975-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Operation Snapshot III was a national operation targeting sex offenders who collect, possess, share, make available, distribute or produce child sexual exploitation material online.
