The ‘CanadaCreep’ Twitter account, which over the span of nearly one year had gone unnoticed and accumulated 17,000 followers, was shut down earlier this week by Twitter.

The account posted unconsented and secrecely captured pictures and videos of Calgary women’s clothed breasts, butts, and genital areas – some including videos taken up women’s skirts while they walked.

Local Calgary bloggers Crackmacs posted a tip their Facebook page which blew up and caught the attention of many Calgarians and The Calgary Police.

An investigation was launched immediately by CPS to determine the identity of the individual taking and distributing the images. On Tuesday, June 13 around 5pm, Williamson was arrested after being identified through a public tip and other cyber-investigative efforts.

Multiple electronic devices were seized and a search warrant was executed on a residence in the community of Prestwick, AB. This resulted in an additional seizure of computers, storage devices and other electronics.

Williamson will next appear in court on Thursday, June 15, 2017.

Anyone who has identified themselves as a victim in any of the images posted online is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service non-emergency line at 403-266-1234.

Case #: 17243516/4856
