In April 2021, the Terrace RCMP launched an investigation into the offences of making, distributing, possessing and accessing child pornography.
The report originated from a social media company who flagged a number of videos which had been uploaded by one of their users. Further investigation into this incident determined that the user was in Terrace.
In June, 2021, the suspect was arrested for child pornography offences as part of the police investigation. The man was not held in custody, however the investigation is ongoing and charges are expected to be laid in the future.
