Crewman Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography

This is the second time in the past few months that crew from a foreign vessel have been charged in BC for possesion of Child Pornography. I am curious what was found and if this is a new trend or method of trafficking. Maybe I'll send an email.......

Prince Rupert File: 2006-1277
Crewman Arrested for Possession of Child Pornography One non-Canadian citizen has been arrested and charged for possession of child pornography. Theses charges come as a result of a search of an incoming, foreign freighter. On October 7th 2006, Officers from the Canadian Border Services Agency, along with members of the Rural Section of the Prince Rupert RCMP, boarded a freighter that had anchored in the Port of Prince Rupert . During that search, officers located child pornography that was in the possession of a crew member. The adult male crew member, a citizen of the Philippines, is currently being detained in Canada and awaiting his court appearance.
