A 54-year-old Morinville man has been arrested by ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) team.
Jeffrey Veenbaas, was arrested on Tuesday (October 17) and charged with possession of child pornography, transmitting child pornography, making child pornography and luring a child.
ICE alleges Veenbaas would impersonate young teens on social media and try to get victims to send him sexual photos and videos.
“Our investigators seized a number of computers and electronic devices from the suspect’s home, which at first glance yielded some pretty disturbing material and online chats. We are actively trying to identify victims,” said ICE Staff Sgt. Stephen Camp.
It's not believed he had any physical contact with his victims, but ICE continues to investigate.
Anyone with information about this investigation is encouraged to contact local police or cybertip.ca.
