SUDBURY - A 32-year-old man and member of the city media faces a number of child porn-related charges.

Callam Senyk-O'Flanagan — better known as Callam Rodya — is charged with three counts each of possession of child pornography, accessing child pornography, making available child pornography and one count of possession of a Schedule 1 controlled substance.

In October of 2018, the Greater Sudbury Police Service Cyber Crime Unit identified a Greater Sudbury resident downloading Child Pornography using a file sharing site between October 2018 and February 2019.

On Feb. 13, 2019, a search warrant was executed at a Greater Sudbury residence and evidence of child pornography was located on computers seized from the residence. During the search warrant, detectives also located a small baggy containing what is suspected to be cocaine inside the residence.

He is scheduled to attend bail court today to answer to the charges.

The Greater Sudbury Police Service Cyber Crime Unit is part of the Ontario Provincial Strategy to Protect Children from Sexual Abuse and Exploitation on the Internet which has been made possible by a grant from the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services and the Ministry of the Attorney General.

Rodya is currently a reporter with CTV in Sudbury. He is a former Sudbury.com reporter.
