CFB TRENTON, Ont. – The facilities co-ordinator at 8 Wing-CFB Trenton's sports centre was arrested and charged Wednesday with four child porn-related offences.
Provincial police have confirmed the arrest of 50-year-old Paul Deschamps, of Frankford, Ont., following an undercover child pornography investigation online.
Police said they executed a search warrant at Deschamps's home in Frankford as a result of their investigation. Two computers and one external hard drive were seized. Police allege the devices contain images of child sexual abuse.
Deschamps has been charged with two counts of possession of child pornography, one count of making child pornography available and one count of accessing child pornography.
Police said the the investigation is ongoing.
Capt. Annie Morin, public affairs officer at the air base, said Deschamps isn't a member of the Canadian Forces at 8 Wing.
“All I know is that Deschamps is a civilian working as facilities co-ordinator at our fitness and sport centre,” said Morin. “We don't have any more information about the case right now. All we know is that he was arrested and charged by the police Wednesday.”
Deschamps will appear in Belleville court Thursday for a bail hearing.
