In May 2010, officers received information that led them to investigate an incident of Internet luring. The suspect is alleged to have contacted the 17-year-old female victim using free online classifieds and engaged in sexually exploitive conversation, requesting to meet her for pornographic photographs and videos.
Officers conducted a lengthy investigation that led them to execute a Criminal Code search warrant at a residence on Browndale Crescent in Richmond Hill on Wednesday, October 20, 2010. The suspect was arrested inside the residence without incident. Inside, investigators seized two laptops, a computer hard-drive, two cell phones, a thumb drive, camera and a quantity of DVDs and CDs.
Investigators believe there may be more victims who may have been contacted through alias user names similar to Jeremy Kamak, Chris Trecell or DJ Trix.
