A Lower Mainland man is facing charges after North Vancouver RCMP conducted an investigation into possible child pornography.
The National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre sent information to the British Columbia Integrated Child Exploitation Unit (BC ICE) in August 2018 about an individual in Metro Vancouver who had allegedly posted suspected child pornography photos on a photo-sharing website.
After BC ICE determined that the individual lived in North Vancouver, BC ICE contacted North Vancouver RCMP for further investigation of the case and RCMP used a search warrant at the residence.
North Vancouver RCMP stated in a news release today (November 26) that 21-year-old Dylan Phillips of North Vancouver was charged on November 7 with one count each of luring, possession of, access to, and making available child pornography.
He has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on December 11.
Anyone who has information about Phillips or similar allegations is asked to contact their local police.
North Vancouver RCMP stated that all children who were identified in this investigation and their families are receiving support.
As the case is before the courts, no further information is being provided by North Vancouver RCMP.
