On April 24, police began an investigation after receiving information regarding online child pornography. The pornography involved text message conversations and private message conversations on a social media site about sexual activity involving children. The conversations were between a 45-year-old Halifax man and other adults who notified authorities.
Just after 9 a.m. on May 17, 2017, investigators in the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division conducted a search of a residence in the 5600 block of Atlantic Street and seized a number of electronic devices for forensic analysis. A man inside the residence was arrested without incident.
Forty-five-year-old Robyn Trent Boswick of Halifax appeared in Halifax Provincial Court on May 17 to face one count of making child pornography.
