Prince Rupert man arrested for child pornography possession, distribution

A 30-year old Prince Rupert man has been arrested for three counts related to child pornography.

A 30-year old Prince Rupert man has been arrested for possession of child pornography.

Edmund White, 30, was arrested on July 3 after RCMP executed a search warrant in the 1700 block of Sloan Ave. There, RCMP seized various electronics devices and charged White with not only possession of child pornography, but importing or distributing child pornography and making or publishing child pornography.

“All of these offences are related to illegal ‘Online’ activities and at this time, we have no reason to believe that any local children have been victimized,” noted Const. Matt Ericson of the Prince Rupert RCMP.

White made his first appearance in court July 4 and was released from custody with strict conditions governing his contact with children and his access to the Internet. His next appearance is scheduled for July 30th, 2014.

This investigation is in its early stages and the Prince Rupert RCMP is asking anyone that may have information regarding this incident to contact the Prince Rupert RCMP Detachment at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Please remember that Crime Stoppers pays cash for information that leads to an arrest. We don’t want your name, just your information.
