65 year old Welsford man charged with internet luring of a child

On July 13, 2010, two charges of luring over the Internet were laid in Hampton Provincial Court against 65-year-old William Atkins of Welsford N.B.

The charges stem from an ongoing investigation initiated by the Halifax Regional Police Department into a man allegedly attempting to lure a child over the Internet. On April 14, 2010, a search warrant was executed at the man’s home by the RCMP’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit. Computer and electronic equipment was seized at the time.

Atkins will appear in provincial court in Hampton on September 7, 2010 to enter his plea.
