Two days later, investigators from the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit conducted a search on Caxton Close in the Clayton Park area. They seized several electronic devices for forensic analysis.

Julien Dugas, 36, was arrested at a separate location in Halifax a short time later.

Dugas is scheduled to appear in court Friday to face charges of possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography, making an arrangement for a sexual offence against a child and making sexually explicit material available to a child.
