Nunavik police arrest new suspect in child pornography investigation
Police seized equipment from home in Akulivik Nov. 22
Nunavik police say they’ve arrested another suspect for the possession and distribution of child pornography, as part of an ongoing region-wide investigation.
A joint investigation by the Kativik Regional Police Force and the Sûreté du Québec led police to a residence in Akulivik on Sunday, Nov. 22, where investigators seized “various” items, the KRPF said in a news release.
A suspect was arrested shortly afterwards for possession and distribution of child pornography, police said.
The arrest is the latest in a region-wide investigation into child pornography. On Oct. 8, 20 and 21, Nunavik police arrested suspects in homes in Akulivik, Kuujjuaraapik and Umiujaq.
Police have not yet indicated if those three suspects face charges.
The KRPF say that so far none of the victims appears to be from Nunavik.
