Strathcona County, Alberta – Strathcona County RCMP with the assistance of ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit have arrested a Sherwood Park man for child pornography offences.
This investigation began in late August 2017 when the RCMP’s National Center for Missing and Exploited Children provided information about a Canadian using a social media account to upload and distribute child pornography.
On March 6, 2018 Strathcona County RCMP and ICE investigators executed a search warrant at a home in Sherwood Park. Aljon PASUQUIN, age 21 was arrested without incident and charged with possessing and distributing child pornography.
A number of computers and electronic devices were seized from the home. The seized devices will be subject to a thorough forensic examination to collect additional evidence.
PASUQUIN was released on a recognizance and is scheduled to appear in Sherwood Park Provincial Court on March 13, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.
While the investigation and charges are related to online offences, Strathcona County RCMP are encouraging anyone with information about this case to come forward and contact police or cybertip.ca.
