Greater Sudbury Police say a search of a Sudbury home on Feb. 11 yielded evidence of child sexual abuse material.**

On Thursday, the GSPS Internet Child Exploitation (I.C.E.) and Computer Forensics Units along, with members of the Emergency Response and Intelligence Units, executed a Search Warrant at a residence in Greater Sudbury.

Police say that search resulted in the collection of evidence related to child sexual abuse.

A 44-year-old woman was arrested and faces six charges:

  • Two counts of Access Child Pornography;
  • Two counts of Possess Child Pornography, and;
  • Two counts of Distribute Child Pornography.

The woman appeared in bail court Feb. 11 answer to the charges.

If you are aware of child sexual abuse or sexual exploitation, you can report such crimes using, a national tip line for reporting the online sexual exploitation of children. 

“Canadians are encouraged to report concerns to if someone they know may be victimizing children online.”

** is opting to change how we describe material that shows the sexual abuse of children, as we feel “child pornography” is an inaccurate term that equates sexual abuse with legal pornography. We feel “child sexual abuse material” is a more accurate term. However, under the Criminal Code, ‘child pornography’ is how such charges are described, so when listing charges only, will use the term ‘child pornography.’
