The RCMP’s Provincial Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit has arrested a Weymouth woman for child pornography offences.
On August 8, the RCMP’s ICE Unit searched a home in Weymouth and was assisted by the RCMP’s Technological Crime Unit and RCMP officers from across the province.
Summer Ann McCauley, 21, was arrested without incident. She has been charged with Possession, Distribution and Making Child Pornography. She was released and is scheduled to appear in Digby Provincial Court on September 26, 2018.
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 Child 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 online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.
