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.
