A Barrie man has been arrested for allegedly sharing nude photos with a 14-year-old girl over SnapChat.

Members of the Barrie Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit launched an investigation on Monday to determine whether nude pictures were shared between the 39-year-old man and the teenager.

According to police, the accused was “easily recognized” in the photos as the victim’s neighbour. Investigators also say a 14-year-old female friend of the victim saw the photos.

On Wednesday, the accused was arrested during a traffic stop and was charged with luring a child and making sexually explicit material available to a child.

He will appear before a court at a future date.
