ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation unit has arrested a 40-year-old man who worked at a Wetaskiwin child care dayhome. Investigators are looking to speak with families who may have used the dayhome in the past.

Tykes and Tots Day Home in Wetaskiwin was searched by the Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) team on April 27, 2017, with help from Wetaskiwin RCMP. The dayhome has been operating since 2001 and previous clients are asked to contact ICE investigators at 780-509-3371.

Currently there is no information to suggest children at the dayhome were offended. However, in the interest of identifying potential victims, ICE is actively exploring the possibility.

The suspect of the investigation is Darren Reilly, a 40-year-old man who worked part-time at the dayhome. Reilly is also employed as a Correctional Peace Officer.

Reilly is accused of downloading and accessing child sexual exploitation materials. ICE began investigating Reilly after referrals from National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Reilly is charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. He is scheduled to appear in court April 28.

ALERT was established and is funded by the Alberta Government and is a compilation of the province’s most sophisticated law enforcement resources committed to tackling serious and organized crime. Members of Calgary Police Service, Edmonton Police Service, Lethbridge Police Service, Medicine Hat Police Service, and RCMP work in ALERT.
