A 24-year-old man wanted for allegedly making child porn and other human trafficking-related charges is behind bars after he was handcuffed in Mississauga.

OPP investigators raided a home in the city on Jan. 5, nabbing the suspect.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Austin Tyler Wells in Nov. 2017.

Wells was wanted for: human trafficking; material benefit from sexual services under 18; procuring person under 18; making child pornography; distributing child pornography; advertising sexual services; sexual exploitation; utter threat; breach of recognizance.

Police are thanking the public for helping them find Wells but aren’t saying too much about the case, citing a court-imposed publication ban.
