High-risk offender Kristjon Olson back in custody: Surrey RCMP

Darpan News Desk Surrey RCMP, 30 Oct, 2020
  • High-risk offender Kristjon Olson back in custody: Surrey RCMP

Surrey RCMP is advising the public that Kristjon Olson is back in custody and facing multiple child pornography and breach related charges.

On May 22, 2020, Surrey RCMP issued a public warning advising that high-risk sex offender, Kristjon Olson, was released from custody and would be residing in Surrey.

Olson was subject to a court order that required him to follow a number of strict conditions. On September 4, 2020 at approximately 6:30 a.m., the Surrey RCMP Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) team, with the assistance of the Surrey RCMP High Risk Target Team (HRTT) and the Vancouver Police Department, arrested Kristjon Olson for breaching a court ordered condition.

Surrey RCMP ICE also launched an investigation into additional child pornography offences. Kristjon Olson remained in custody since his arrest and, on October 29, 2020, seven charges were laid against him.

The charges included possession and distribution of child pornography, indecent act, and four breach charges. The release of high-risk offenders into the community raises the public’s concern for safety.

Surrey RCMP is working diligently to manage the risk posed to the community by high-risk offenders, working closely with BC Community Corrections. Police conduct overt checks and monitor to ensure offenders abide by their conditions. In this case, a failure to comply with conditions resulted in an immediate arrest.
