A 61-year-old man has been charged with child pornography offences following a year-long investigation by detectives with the Abbotsford Police Department’s major crime unit.
Barry Granbois of Abbotsford faces charges of accessing, possessing and making available child pornography.
A search warrant was executed at his residence in July, resulting in police seizing computers, memory sticks, hard drives, cameras and phones.
Const. Ian MacDonald said an examination of these items showed evidence of the sexual abuse and exploitation of children.
Granbois has been released by the courts, with conditions that include no contact or communication with anyone under the age of 18; no attendance at public areas such as parks, daycare centres, recreation centres and swimming pools where people under the age of 18 are expected to be present; and not possessing or using any electronic device capable of accessing the internet.
Anyone with information about Granbois should contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text abbypd (222973).
