Gull Island, N.L. man arrested for multiple online child exploitation offences

St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador – Twenty-two-year old Nicholas Fahey of Gull Island was arrested on April 29, 2021, following an investigation by the RCMP/RNC Integrated Internet Child Exploitation (IICE) team. He is charged with multiple online child exploitation offences.

The investigation began in early 2020, after police received reports from the US Department of Homeland Security that two American youth had been exploited online by a resident of this province. A local investigation by IICE led to a search warrant that was executed on a Gull Island residence in July of 2020.

Fahey is now charged with the following criminal offences:

Possession of Child Pornography

Transmission of Child Pornography

File Photo - Child Exploitation
File Photo – Child Exploitation

Making Sexually Explicit Material Available to a Child

Luring a Child (x2)

Indecent Act (exposure)

Extortion (x2)

Invitation to Sexual Touching

Fahey was released from custody on conditions designed to protect the general public and is scheduled to appear in court June 16, 2021.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to exercise proper supervision of children while online and to foster regular discussions with their children about online safety.
