Teens arrested for child porn

Three young men have been arrested in Kamloops and charged with distributing child pornography.

Word of these crimes was first reported last month when the RCMP announced they were investigating the alleged exchange of ‘inappropriate material’ after being contacted by the local school district.

The youths were arrested earlier today and publication bans have already been put into effect, in order to protect the identity of the kids who are all under the age of 18.

The Kamloops RCMP says no more information will be provided, as the matter is part of an active investigation and now before the courts.

Last month, the superintendent of the school district Terry Sullivan, said some students had already been disciplined.
