A Toronto man was arrested on Wednesday by the RCMP and faces charges relating to the production and distribution of child pornography after investigators found “multiple images and videos depicting child sexual exploitation,” Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported.
Scott T. MacDonald, a 49-year-old man who is employed as a commercial fisherman, was arrested in a warehouse at 300 Fontaine Road in Oakville, Ontario, according to CBC News. MacDonald was scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning.
MacDonald is charged with seven counts of production of child pornography and two counts of distribution of child pornography.
In October 2018, the Canadian Royal Canadian Mounted Police’s National Child Exploitation unit received a report regarding a Toronto-area man who used the website uWho as a distribution platform to distribute child pornography. Further investigations by NCEU found that MacDonald was the individual identified by uWho as the suspect in the content distribution. On Nov. 20, the NCEU executed a search warrant on his residence and recovered evidence of child pornography.
