Bible Hill, Nova Scotia

On May 18, following an investigation, the RCMP’s ICE Unit searched a home in Bi­ble Hill. The RCMP Technological Crime Unit and Colchester District RCMP assisted with the search and the subsequent arr­est of a 24-year-old man.

In Nova Scotia, it is 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. The RCMP encourages citizens to be a vo­ice for 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 sexual exploit­ation of children atwww.cybertip.ca
