Man Facing Child Pornography Charges Throws Evidence out Window

In February 2019, the Hamilton Police Service Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit began an investigation into an individual who was in possession of child pornography and made it readily available.

The male suspect was identified as residing in Hamilton and a search warrant was executed at his home on January 16, 2020. When police arrived, the male was attempting to discard evidence by throwing it out a window. The evidence was located and seized and the suspect was arrested and charged. A forensic examination of devices capable of storing digital media is ongoing and it is possible that further charges may be filed.
