Police in B.C. have arrested and charged a company with child pornography offences after finding an online cache of child pornography on a private vehicle.
The company, Rethink Car Service, had the company’s name and phone number on a computer and had installed a webcam in the vehicle, said Const.
Mark Williams with the B.A.C.’s Special Investigations Unit.
It’s the second time in the past month that police have arrested the company.
Last month, police seized a computer belonging to the company in a separate operation.
The B.F.C., RCMP and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration are investigating the case.
Williams says Rethune Car Service is not the first car company to have a webcam on its vehicle.
In February, the BAC police seized two laptops belonging to a company that sells car services and is in a similar situation.
The RCMP says it is still investigating.
The arrest comes after the BCTF, which represents about 40 per cent of the BCHF’s fleet, called for the BACP to “stop criminalizing and shaming” the company and to investigate whether its actions constituted a crime.
It also called for a review of how BCHFs deal with the use of corporal punishments and “other forms of corporality-based abuse.”
