North Vancouver man, 21, facing child porn charges after police search home

Dylan Phillips is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 11

A man from North Vancouver has been charged with multiple child pornography offences.

In a Tuesday news release, Mounties said Dylan Phillips, 21, was charged with one count of luring a child and one count each of possession, accessing and making available child pornography earlier this month.

B.C.’s Integrated Child Exploitation Unit opened the case in August 2018, after Phillips allegedly posted photos of suspected child porn on a photo-sharing website. Charges were laid following a search of his home.

RCMP said all children identified during the investigation, and their families, are receiving support.

Phillips has been released from custody on conditions and is scheduled to appear at provincial court in North Vancouver on Dec. 11.
