Former summer camp director facing child pornography charges in southern Alberta

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. — A former youth summer camp director has been arrested in southern Alberta on child pornography charges.

Investigators from the province's internet child exploitation unit and from Medicine Hat police took Nolan Davidson, who is 25, into custody last week.

Davidson identifies himself on social media as a former camp director at Eagles Nest Ranch, a youth summer camp in Cypress Hills Provincial Park.

He is charged with possession of child pornography and accessing child pornography.

Police say there is no evidence to suggest any offences were committed against children who attended the camp, 70 kilometres southeast of Medicine Hat.

A number of electronic devices were seized from the suspect's home and will be forensically searched.

The investigation began last November when the U.S. National Center for Missing and Exploited Children passed on information to the National Child Exploitation Co-ordination Centre in Ottawa about a social media user uploading child pornography.
