Toronto man facing 9 child pornography charges


Police have charged a Toronto man in connection with a child pornography investigation.

Police searched a property in the Lake Shore Boulevard West area last week where they found evidence a man had lured a child over the internet and was making and distributing child pornography.

Police allege the man was using the following fake user names and email addresses:

  • Abigail Davies; abbydavies429@gmail.com
  • Danica Pines: danicapines@gmail.com
  • Maria Moon: zippym97@gmail.com
  • Natasha Z: natashamoo97@gmail.com
  • Jim Victorry: jvictorry@gmail.com
  • Ashton Gomes: ashtongomes98@gmail.com

They believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Jim Vanderberg, 57, is facing nine charges, including five counts of making child pornography, possession of child pornography, accessing child pornography, making child pornography available, and luring a child under 16 years old.

A man operating social media profiles under the same name and with profile pictures resembling a photograph of the suspect released by police operates a company that connects charities, including World Vision Canada, with celebrity spokespeople.

World Vision Canada issued a statement Monday saying Vanderberg was an employee from 2006-2012 as manager of talent relations. It said that it will be conducting an internal investigation.

Vanderberg appeared in court July 23.
