Published: 6 hours ago
Montreal police have searched the home of Selwyn House teacher Richard Doucet as he continues to be investigated for allegedly distributing child pornography and attempting to lure a minor over the internet.
Montreal police Constable Yannick Ouimet said Doucet's home was searched on Friday and computer equipment was seized.
Doucet was arrested Thursday night in Fredricksburg, Virginia after he allegedly tried to lure a person he thought was a 13-year-old boy to meet him. Instead, it was a Virginia police detective who had been posing as a 13-year-old boy in internet chatrooms.
Ouimet said it remains to be seen whether any evidence gathered here will be sent to Virginia, where Doucet faces four charges, or used to produce charges here.
According to court records, Doucet lives in LaSalle.
Doucet was arraigned on Friday and is being held in custody for a preliminary inquiry scheduled for June.
