Port Colborne man facing charges in child sex abuse investigation
An investigation into the sexual exploitation of children has resulted in the arrest of a 50-year-old Port Colborne man.
Niagara Regional Police say the investigation began last month and led investigators to a home in the city, where a search warrant was executed on Thursday.
Police say a number of computer systems and storage media were seized and forensically examined.
As a result of the investigation, Todd Albert Klacko was arrested and is facing several charges, including sexual assault of a person under 16 years of age, invitation to sexual touching and failing to comply with a prohibition regarding children.
Police say Klacko has been held in custody pending a bail hearing Friday.
Investigators say they have reason to believe that there are additional victims within the community.
Anyone with information in this matter is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Dave Biggar at 905-688-4111 ext. 9128 or at email@example.com.
