The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of Newfoundland and Labrador (CFSEU-NL) Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) Team — with the assistance of the Baie Verte RCMP — has charged a Burlington man with child luring.

Police executed a search warrant Tuesday on a Burlington home in relation to the investigation, which began in 2015.

Sidney Malcolme Budgell, 28, remained in police custody until he was released on an undertaking by the provincial court in Grand Falls-Windsor that afternoon. Budgell’s next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 28 in Baie Verte. CFSEU-NL is reminding all parents that any child can be victimized by online predators throughout the world and encourages all parents to monitor their children's internet activities.
