Sarnia Man Facing Child Pornography Charges

A 38-year-old Sarnia man has been arrested and charged with possession and distribution of child pornography.

The Sarnia Police Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE Unit) launched an investigation this past February regarding the distribution of child pornography in the city.

Constable John Sottosanti says as a result of the information gathered, members of the ICE Unit, Criminal Investigation Branch, Electronic Crime Branch, Forensic Identification Unit and general patrol executed a search warrant at a residence in the city.

“Officers were able to seize various forms of electronic devices because of the warrant,” says Sottosanti.

He says the man was released from custody on a promise to appear in court May 23.

Sottosanti says the man’s name is not being released at this time, due to the sensitive nature of the case.
