A 34-year-old man from Grande Prairie is facing 10 charges, including one count of making, printing or publishing child porn, after a year-long investigation.

RCMP and ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit received information from the National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre last year.

They began to investigate and ended up conducting a search warrant at a home in Grande Prairie.

On Nov. 24, Ryan Lillie was arrested and charged with five counts of possession of child porn; four counts of transmitting, making available or distributing child porn; and one count of making, printing or publishing child porn.

The accused was released on bail under several conditions that include:

· No contact with anyone under the age of 16 years unless supervised by an appropriate adult
