A Swift Current man has been charged by the Saskatchewan Internet Child Exploitation Unit. 

Derrick Heebner was charged on Feb. 13 after an online investigation led to the execution of a search warrant for his home. 

The charges are for luring a child by means of telecommunication to commit an invitation to sexual touching, and for possession of child pornography.

The 56-year-old has appeared in Swift Current Provincial Court and has been released on conditions. His next court date is set for March 13, 2024, at 1:30 p.m. in Swift Current.
