Joint Investigation Between Peterborough Police And Saskatchewan Police ICE Unit Results In Child Luring Charges

PETERBOROUGH-A 37-year-old Regina man was arrested after a joint investigation between the Peterborough Police Service ICE Unit and the Saskatchewan Police ICE Unit.

In early May 2023, an officer with the Peterborough Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit (ICE), commenced an online investigation on a variety of social media platforms.

While online, the officer developed grounds to arrest a male from Regina Saskatchewan. The details of the investigation were forwarded to the Saskatchewan ICE Unit, and upon further investigation, the male was identified and charged.

37-year-old Warren Gnam of Regina was charged on May 18, 2023 with;

  • 2 Counts – Luring a child – 172.1(1)(a) of the Criminal Code
  • 2 Counts – Luring a child – 172.1(1)(b) of the Criminal Code

The accused used a number of social media applications under the user names “Captain Canada” and “Warren Gnam.”

He was held in custody overnight and appeared in court on May 19, 2023. He was released on numerous conditions until his next court appearance on June 14, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. in Regina Provincial Court.

“Thank you to our partners at the Regina Police Service and Saskatoon City Police throughout the investigation,” said Peterborough Police.

The Peterborough Police Service is a member of the Provincial Strategy to Protect children from sexual abuse and exploitation on the internet. This project has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of the Solicitor General.
