Burnaby man charged with possession and distribution of child pornography

Darpan News Desk Burnaby RCMP, 24 Sep, 2020
  • Burnaby man charged with possession and distribution of child pornography

After an extensive three-year investigation by Burnaby RCMP’s Child Abuse and Sexual Offences Unit (CASO), 37-year-old Burnaby man, Michael Grondine (also known as Michael Grondines) is facing charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

In September 2017, Burnaby RCMP was contacted by the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children and made aware that images and videos of child sexual abuse had been uploaded by an individual in Burnaby.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, police investigated a number of similar reports which were allegedly linked to the same individual. Through investigation of this information, police identified a suspect living at a residence in Burnaby and over the last year have executed warrants and seized a number of electronic devices as part of the investigation.

The investigation was forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service in July 2019 for consideration of charges which were approved in late August of this year. Grondine was arrested and has since been released with numerous conditions including to have no contact with individuals who are under the age of 18 and to not frequent areas where young people are known to congregate such as school grounds and playgrounds.

Grondine is also banned from possessing any electronic devices that allow access to the internet.
