Police arrest man wanted on child pornography charges from Quebec in Parksville

A man wanted on child pornography charges from Quebec has been apprehended on Vancouver Island.

Jimmy Pieschke had pled guilty to several child pornography-related offenses, including “making child pornography,” but failed to appear in court.

Police put out a call for help from the public in February after the 39-year-old was spotted on Salt Spring Island.

On Wednesday, they received a report that Pieschke had been seen in Parksville and frontline officers sprung into action.
