Man faces child porn charge with link to Qualicum Beach

Jason Thomas Graff was in Chilliwack court on March 5 to face multiple charges

A man is facing charges of child pornography linked to Qualicum Beach and Cumberland, and telecommunicating to lure a child in Hope.

“Hope RCMP received a report of a individual who was in possession of child pornography, (and) during their investigation a suspect was identified,” said Cpl. Mike Rail, media liaison officer for the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment.

Jason Thomas Graff was arrested on Vancouver Island and later released pending court appearances in Chilliwack.

Public court documents from the Chilliwack courthouse show Graff facing four charges: telecommunicating with a child under 16 and under 18, and two counts of possessing child pornography stemming from incidents in Qualicum Beach and Cumberland.

His next court appearance is scheduled for March 19 in Chilliwack.

Graff is listed as the owner and general manager of B.C. Protection Services, a Hope-based security firm, but The Standard’s attempts to confirm whether he’s still running the company have gone unanswered. The company’s security licence, however, is still active.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
