Hebron man arrested on child pornography charges
The RCMP’s Provincial Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit has arrested a Hebron man for child pornography offences.
On June 16, the RCMP’s ICE Unit searched a home in Hebron, assisted by the RCMP’s Digital Forensic Services Unit, along with the Yarmouth County Street Crime Enforcement Unit, General Investigative Section, and general duty members.
Investigators were directed to the residence after receiving information from the National Child Exploitation Crime Centre in November 2020 and again in May 2021.
Jared Langthorne, 22, was arrested at his home without incident. He has been charged with Possession of Child Pornography and Transmitting Child Pornography. Langthorne was released on a number of strict conditions. He is next scheduled to appear in Yarmouth Provincial Court on September 27, 2021.
In Nova Scotia, it is mandatory for citizens to report suspected child pornography. This means that anyone who encounters child pornography material or recordings must report it to the police. Failing to report suspicious activity and materials could result in penalties similar to failure to report child abuse set out in the Child and Family Services Act. The RCMP encourages citizens to be a voice for children who are victims of sexual exploitation by reporting any suspected offences to your local police or by using Canada’s National tipline for reporting online sexual exploitation of children at www.cybertip.ca.
