Police have charged a Saskatoon man with a total of seven child pornography offences.
The Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit said the charges stem from complaints they received about three separate user profiles sharing child pornography through popular social media applications.
The same person was associated with all three profiles, according to investigators.
ICE members searched a Saskatoon home on April 10 and seized child pornography, a cell phone, and laptop.
Joseph George Cyr, 53, was arrested at the home. The charges he faces include possession and making child pornography available.
Cyr was released from custody on numerous conditions. He is scheduled to make his next Saskatoon provincial court appearance on April 25.
The ICE unit’s mandate is to investigate crimes involving the abuse as well as the exploitation of children on the Internet.
