VAUGHAN, Ont. – Police have laid multiple charges after a years-long investigation into what they describe as a “big box store” of child pornography that supplied customers around the world.

Provincial police announced the results of the investigation this morning, alongside members of Toronto police and members of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

They allege the operation used computer servers at a Toronto web-hosting business, offering millions of illegal images and videos to paying customers in more than 100 countries.
