Child Porn Charges Laid After ICE Receives Tip from Australia

Published




Following an extensive ALERT Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Unit investigation, numerous new charges relating to child sexual exploitation have now been laid against Christopher Juneau. The total number of charges now stands at 73.

ICE’s continued investigation into Juneau has uncovered a series of new offences, and has identified at least eight child victims. A news release concerning the 34-year-old Eckville man’s initial arrest was issued by ALERT on January 23, 2019.

ICE has identified eight victims who were allegedly sexually assaulted by Juneau. The alleged offences took place at various times and date back to 2013.

Sylvan Lake RCMP, Fox Creek RCMP, the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre in Red Deer, and the Caribou Child & Youth Centre in Grande Prairie have provided extensive assistance on the case.

Following the news release and subsequent media coverage, a number of potential victims provided information to police. ICE was also able to identify additional victims through a forensic analysis of the computers and other seized electronic devices seized from Juneau’s home.

Forensic analysis of Juneau’s phone and computers has so far yielded more than half a million images and videos of child sexual exploitation and voyeurism. ICE forensic technicians have yet to complete their full analysis.

Juneau was charged with the new offences on March 1, 2019. He has remained in custody since January 18, 2019, when he was arrested by Sylvan Lake RCMP.

Charges against Juneau include multiple instances of:

  • sexual assault;
  • sexual interference;
  • invitation to sexual touching;
  • voyeurism;
  • possessing, accessing, distributing, and making child pornography; and
  • breach of recognizance.

Juneau’s initial arrest came after ICE received information from Australia’s Task Force Argos, a specialized online child exploitation unit of the Queensland Police Service.

Anyone with information about this investigation, or any cases related to child sexual exploitation, is encouraged to come forward and contact police or Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-TIPS).

ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime. Members of Calgary Police Service, Edmonton Police Service, Lethbridge Police Service, Medicine Hat Police Service, and RCMP work in ALERT.

From the Edmonton Police Service

Earlier this year on January 28, 2019, at approximately 9:20 p.m., police responded to a residence in the area of 117 Avenue and 101 Street on the report of a discharged firearm. It was reported that five masked individuals approached a residence and attempted to force their way inside. 

Moments later, a firearm was discharged through the front door of the residence. Fortunately, no one was struck or injured. The suspects then fled the area in an unknown vehicle. 

Investigators are releasing video of the incident in hopes of identifying all suspects involved. Police also believe this was a targeted incident. 

Anyone with information regarding the identities of the suspects in the video is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.

Between June 8 and June 18, 2019, Northeast Division received four reports of an unknown male suspect who arranged through Kijiji to purchase cell phones from sellers before robbing them of the phones by displaying what appeared to be a handgun in a holster. Following a news release that was issued on June 19, 2019, an additional complainant came forward to report a similar occurrence.

EPS Cyber Crime Investigations Unit members were able to use the Kijiji interactions to trace the suspect, and he was subsequently arrested by the EPS Tactical Unit on the evening of June 19. An airsoft replica handgun was found in his possession at the time of arrest.

Aladeen Kadiry20, was arrested on June 19, 2019 and charged with robbery with a firearm (x5) and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public (x5).

“When we have a series of armed robberies happening, this is something we take very seriously. While we were in the process of warning the public and seeking tips, our Cyber Crime Investigations Unit was also working on trying to identify the suspect, and I’m happy to say we were able to do that.”EPS Detective Calvin Mah.

Police believe there may be additional complainants, and are encouraging them to come forward by calling the Edmonton Police Service at 780-423-4567or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.

Background

June 19th, 2019

The Edmonton Police Service is alerting citizens to a reported series of armed robberies involving cellphones offered for sale on Kijiji.

Between June 8 and June 18, Northeast Division received four reports of an unknown male suspect who arranged through Kijiji to purchase cellphones from sellers before robbing them of the phones. The suspect gave the complainants a fake name and phone number, and in two cases, used a female name during their initial interactions over Kijiji. In each case, the suspect arranged to meet the seller at Northtown or Northgate shopping centre or Northgate Transit Centre to conduct the transaction.

It was reported that each time, when the suspect met with the seller, he asked them to unlock the phone and then robbed the seller by showing them what appeared to be a handgun in a holster on his person. In two cases, when the lone female sellers arrived at the meeting location to conduct the transaction, the suspect got into the vehicle with them before committing the robbery.

On each occasion, the suspect walked away on foot after threatening the complainants by saying he had taken a photo of their license plate and knew how to find them. None of the complainants have reported that the suspect ever removed the handgun from the holster.

The suspect is described as a male between 20 and 30 years of age, 5’7” to 5’9” tall with an olive to tan skin tone. He reportedly wears a black baseball cap and carries what appears to be a handgun in a holster.

“We want to remind citizens to use caution when meeting up with strangers. Arrange to meet in a safe, visible and public location, not in your home or vehicle, bring another person with you, tell a family member or friend where and when you are doing the transaction and what time you expect to be finished, and pay attention to your instincts. If something feels off at any point, abandon the sale.”Detective. Calvin Mah, EPS Northeast Division

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the male suspect is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.
