Three suspects charged with child pornography offences

Police Crest

Three people face charges after an investigation into numerous locations, including Amherstburg, related to child pornography accusations.


As part of “Project Aquatic,” the Windsor Police Service and Chatham-Kent Police Service state they have arrested and charged three individuals with child pornography-related offences.


Between February 26 and March 1, 2024, Windsor Police partnered with Chatham‐Kent Police to execute four search warrants in five locations across Windsor, Amherstburg, and Chatham. As a result, police say 23 electronic devices were seized and 15 charges were laid. Of those charges, 11 were laid by Windsor Police and four by Chatham-Kent Police.


“Child sexual exploitation is a terrible crime that can have lifelong impacts on victims,” said Windsor Police Inspector Andrew Randall. “Through initiatives like Project Aquatic, we are working hard to safeguard victims and hold predators accountable.” Windsor police said last Wednesday that “Project Aquatic” is part of the OPP-led Provincial Internet Child Exploitation Strategy, involving 27 police services across Ontario. Police add that in the months leading up to the operation, each agency developed its own targets, in response to reports made through http://cybertip.ca, and file sharing services, and executed search warrants during the takedown week.


Across Ontario, this year’s operation yielded 348 charges against 64 people.
