Child Porn Investigation in Alberta Uncovers 'Extreme' Photos, Videos

A seven-month police investigation into child sexual exploitation has netted the arrest of eight Albertans, six of them from Calgary.

The operation focused on "high-level targets" that were sharing and distributing large collections of child sexual exploitation photos and videos, police in Calgary announced Tuesday.

"Some of the victims in the photos are estimated to be as young as six months old," the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit of the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams (ALERT) said in a release, adding that the photos "depict extreme sexual abuse."

Dubbed Operation ICE Storm II, the investigation uncovered more than 14 terabytes of data, which was analyzed by forensic technicians. About 100,000 photos and videos of child exploitation were identified, an official said.

Investigators do not believe any of the victims are from Alberta, or that any hands-on offences took place in the province.

They don't say why they believe this, but I suspect it is because the victims are probably Philippino.

The investigation by the numbers:

Eight Albertans arrested, six from Calgary.
16 search warrants executed from September 2014 to March 2015.
85 computers and electronic devices seized.
14 terabytes of data analyzed.
100,000 photos and video of child sexual abuse identified.

An earlier phase of Operation ICE Storm wrapped up in April 2014 with the arrest of 10 offenders.

When you start researching child pornography in Alberta there seems to be no end of stories; a few of the more recent ones follow. I do not think for a minute that Alberta is any worse than any other province in Canada for kiddie porn, but rather, the police and ICE unit in Alberta are doing exceptional work in the field. I thank them and congratulate them; they are my heroes today. There are few jobs more difficult than investigating child porn. God bless you and keep you from the very evil you investigate.

Alberta man draws 40-year child porn sentence in Puerto Rico

Denis Courchesne was arrested in 2014 arriving in San Juan from Panama

The Associated Press 

A Canadian man has been sentenced in Puerto Rico to 40 years in prison for possession and production of child pornography.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says Denis Victor Courchesne of Fort McMurray, Alta., was sentenced Tuesday in the U.S. Caribbean territory.

He was arrested last year at the island's main airport when U.S. customs officers found images of child pornography on his laptop computer and an external hard drive.

The 46-year-old Canadian had just arrived on a flight from Panama.

In an affidavit, U.S. agents alleged Courchesne told them he was sexually attracted to prepubescent girls.


Investigators said he downloaded hundreds of child pornography images as a paid subscriber to an online group and also produced unlawful images with his cellular phone.

FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. July 10, 2015 -- A municipal employee in northern Alberta has been charged with accessing and possessing child pornography.

Police say Phil Walding, who is 50, is chief taxi inspector for the Rural Municipality of Wood Buffalo, which includes Fort McMurray.

Officials with the Alberta Law Enforcement Response Teams say Walding was arrested on Thursday by the Internet child exploitation unit.

His Fort McMurray home was also searched.

The charges are not believed to be connected to Walding's employment with the municipality.

The municipality says in a statement posted online that Walding has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.


ALERT officials say an investigation began in June after the RCMP's national child exploitation unit notified them of a Fort McMurray resident suspected of uploading images depicting child sexual exploitation to a website in the United States.


Calgary father pleads guilty to sickening array of charges including incest, fondling, kiddie porn 10

First he committed incest by having a sexual relationship with his daughter over several years.

Then he fondled a neighbour’s daughter by touching her through his basement window while she played outside.

And when police came to arrest him, they discovered the Calgary man trying to delete child pornography from his computer before it could be discovered.

The offender, 47, pleaded guilty Friday to four charges, including possessing child porn and incest.

At the request of defence counsel Rebecca Snukal, he’ll undergo psychiatric and psychological testing as well as a risk assessment prior to his January sentencing.

Crown prosecutor Nadine Nesbitt presented a statement of agreed facts to provincial court Judge Catherine Skene in relation to the fondling and pornography charges.

Nesbitt said she’ll have to draft a second exhibit on the incest charge to send to forensics in preparation of his mental health report.

The father is charged with having a sexual relationship with his daughter between Jan. 1, 2007, and March 27, 2014.

He was on bail on allegations of incest and sexual touching of a minor when on July 26, 2014, he was in his basement suite while his landlord’s five-year-old daughter played outside, the document Nesbitt presented to Skene said.

He called the girl over and then touched her privates over her clothing.

His landlord witnessed the assault and initially demanded the tenant come outside, before calling police when he refused.

Cops later found more than 6,000 child porn images on his home electronics.

The Airdrie owner of a massive child pornography collection pleaded guilty Friday to two charges, including attempting to lure a nine-year-old Virginia girl over the Internet.

Airdrie is a suburb of Calgary.

Robert James Tyndall, 43, pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and using a telecommunications device to lure a minor to commit a sexual offence.

According to a statement of agreed facts made an exhibit by Crown prosecutor Jenny Rees, police were first notified when the grandmother of a nine-year-old girl saw an inappropriate text on her cellphone.

“The text message said ‘let’s f---,’ ” the court exhibit said.

The grandmother “did not know who sent the text message and contacted the police.”

Police then interviewed the girl and she told an officer she’d been communicating with a man going by “Rob Williams” and “they would only talk about ‘nasty stuff.’ ”

Cops were eventually able to trace the communications to Tyndall’s Airdrie residence.

There they seized a computer, hard drives, and optical discs containing child pornography.

Among the items found were two child pornography videos of the girl in files named “sexey vid for rob.”

“The Internet history verified the Facebook messaging with (the girl),” the agreed facts stated.

Tyndall also sent the girl a video of a male naked on a couch, or bed masturbating.

“The video shows a little part of the male’s face but it was impossible to identify who it is,” it said.

In all 837 videos and 11,367 images of child pornography were discovered.


A pre-sentence report will be prepared before Tyndall’s June 26 sentencing.

I have been unable to find any reports on his sentencing.
