Victor Dubé, Rosemont resident, facing child porn charges

Montreal police have released details of their arrest of 72-year-old Victor Dubé, who faces charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.

Dubé was arrested May 7 after investigators searched his Rosemont home and seized his computer and home-printed booklets containing lewd photos of minors.

Police said they found thousands of offending photos and videos on the computer.

The Crown prosecutor successfully petitioned the court to keep Dubé in custody.
