EDMONTON (660 NEWS) – An investigation into potential child luring has led to the arrest of an Edmonton man for sexual exploitation.

Alberta’s Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) received a tip from authorities in Texas who said a nine-year-old girl from Abilene was being lured online.

It’s alleged the girl engaged in explicit conversations with a man and even shared nude photos through social media.

On Aug. 15, Edmonton police searched a house in Edmonton and arrested 35-year-old Adam Warwick.

“There are no borders on the internet, so it’s imperative that law enforcement agencies are able to share information on cases like this,” said Cpl. Dave Knight, ALERT ICE Unit. “Once we received the information from Texas, we acted as quickly as we could to arrest the suspect and ensure the child’s safety.”

Warwick has now been charged with child luring; exposing a child to explicit material; making child pornography; distributing child pornography and possession of child pornography.
