A 52-year-old Prince George man is facing several charges, including making child pornography.
Shawn Robert Dick has been charged with sexual assault, sexual interference, making child pornography, possession of chlid pornography, distributing child pornography, administering a stupefying drug, and voyeurism.
The charges stem from an RCMP investigation which began July 5, when they received a report of child pornography that had been located in a Prince George residence. The investigation identified a female child victim and the male offender. Police also say the man was making and distributing child pornography of the girl.
“This is a disturbing case of child sexual abuse,” said Cpl. Carmen Kiener of the Prince George RCMP. “Our front line members did a great job in gathering evidence and ensuring this child was saved from the situation and further harm wasn’t brought to this child.”
No other information will be released by police at this time due to a court-ordered publication ban.
Dick is a travelling salesman and travels throughout B.C. Due to these factors, police have not ruled out the possibility of more victims and are reaching out to the public.
If you have any information about these criminal offences or believe you or someone you know may be a victim, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300.
