Jamieson was arrested on March 27, 2017, as a result of a lengthy investigation. In mid-2016, ICE investigators were contacted by the National Centre for Missing Exploited Children regarding Child Sexual Abuse Images from a Winnipeg-based IP address.
In November, 2016, an initial investigation of a Winnipeg residence revealed the presence of child sexual abuse images involving victims as young as eight months old. As a result, Jamieson was arrested and charged with Possessing and Making Child Pornography. He was initially detained in custody, however, he was subsequently granted bail.
ICE investigators continued with their investigation which revealed a communication was established, via a popular instant messaging/live-streaming app, with an as-of-yet unidentified male suspect located in the United States. This suspect was 'live streaming' the sexual assault of a 6-year-old child in his care. The investigation indicated that the American suspect was being directed to commit various sexual assaults against the child by an individual in Winnipeg.
As a result, on March 2, 2017, the above-noted charges were laid against Jamieson who was detained in custody. Efforts to determine the exact location and identity of the victim are continuing with the assistance of National Child Exploitation Coordination Centre and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
