LETHBRIDGE - ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit have arrested a 24-year-old man for a number of child pornography offences.

Cody Wright was arrested on Wednesday, November 8, at a home on the Blood Reserve with the assistance of the Blood Tribe Police’s Crime Reduction unit. ICE also searched a Lethbridge home and seized a number of electronic devices for forensic analysis.

In an investigation which began in October, ICE alleges that Wright was uploading child pornography to a social media account. The Ice unit was tipped off, when the RCMP’s National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre shared information on the suspect.

Wright has been charged with possessing, accessing, and distributing child pornography, as well as two counts of breach of recognizance. His breach charges are related to similar offences committed in November 2016.

Anyone with information about this investigation or any child exploitation offence is encouraged to contact local police or www.cybertip.ca.
