A Grande Prairie man with connections to Northern BC has been arrested on numerous charges of child exploitation.

34 year-old Jonathan Karl Bruenig has connections to junior hockey teams in the area, and is a former resident of Kelowna.

Police say Bruenig would pose as a teenage girl online in attempts to bait teenage boys in to sending him exploitative pictures and videos.

Bruenig was arrested after an alleged attempt to lure a boy to meet was reported by a relative.

So far police know of at least two victims, but are expecting many more.

Bruenig is facing 8 counts relating to child luring, making and distributing child pornography, and possession of child pornography. He will appear in court on February 12th.
