Child pornography bust at Cascade border crossing

Canada Border Services detained a 48-year-old man at the Cascade port of entry after searching his vehicle and finding child pornography.

On April 15, Canada Border Services detained Chris Wayne Poulsen, 48, at the Cascade port of entry after searching his vehicle and finding child pornography.

Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison, Grand Forks RCMP, said Poulsen was trying to enter Canada and was searched because he’d declared that he was bringing legal firearms into the country.

Poulsen, who is from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, was then handed over to RCMP in Grand Forks to process.

He has been charged with possession of child pornography and appeared in court in Rossland on Monday.

Harrison said border officers also located 14 flash drives, one external hard drive and 157 assorted burned disks all suspected of containing child pornography, as well as a laptop computer, all of which is being sent off for analysis by the RCMP’s forensic computer unit in Vancouver.

The matter is still under investigation.
