Kamloops man charged with possession of child pornography

On July 2, police arrested 32-year-old Devan Shane Wallis.

A Kamloops man is facing possession of child pornography charges following a 15-month police investigation.

In April, the Kamloops RCMP was contacted by the BC Integrated Child Exploitation Unit in relation to suspected child pornography that was uploaded locally, Const. Crystal Evelyn said in a release.

Following the lengthy investigation, a report was submitted to Crown for charge assessment. Charges were subsequently approved and an arrest warrant was issued.

On July 2, police arrested Devan Shane Wallis, 32, of Kamloops, who stands charged with one count of possessing child pornography.

He was released on a court order with multiple conditions, including to not go to any public park, public swimming area, community centre or theatre where anyone under the age of 18 is or could reasonably be expected to be. He is also ordered not to attend any day care, school ground or playground and cannot access any computer network that has access to the internet.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 9.
