The RCMP Internet Child Exploitation Unit, with assistance from Digby RCMP and the RCMP Technological Crime Unit, executed a search warrant at a residence in Plympton, Digby County on December 11th, 2014.
Craig Trefry, 26, was arrested at the home and has been charged with Making Available Child Pornography, Possession of Child Pornography and two counts of Unsafe Storage of a Firearm. He was released from custody and will appear in Digby Court on June 8th, 2015.
The RCMP encourages all members of our communities to be a voice for those children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada’s National tip line for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.
In October 2008, Nova Scotia introduced legislation making it mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Children and Family Services Act.
