A suspect in an alleged child-luring case with ties to the Shuswap and North Okanagan has been remanded in custody.

Few details are available, but a man was arrested following RCMP execution of a search warrant at an undisclosed location in Vernon Thursday.

Members of the Southeast District general investigation section and Chase RCMP, from the Shuswap, carried out the warrant.

“The search warrant was a result of a comprehensive investigation that involved law enforcement agencies from B.C. and Ontario,” stated Sgt. Gary Heebner, Chase RCMP detachment commander, in a press release.

The allegations for these offences stem from interactions between the adult suspect and a child over the Internet using a social networking site.

The 26-year-old  suspect has been charged with two counts of luring a child, one count of sexual interference and one count of breaching his conditions. He will appear in court today.
