A province-wide child exploitation investigation involving the OPP, RCMP and municipal police forces has seen more than 80 people charged.

A few of these arrests were just south of Muskoka with one in Orillia and two in Barrie.

Barrie OPP arrested 52-year-old John Strapco for a list of charges including sexual assault, luring under 16 and possession of child pornography.

Orillia OPP announced last week they had arrested 37-year-old Gary Bowman under the charge of possession of child pornography.

The other Barrie suspect is a 28-year-old charged with making pornography available to a child as well as luring under 18, although the name has not been released.

During this province-wide bust three girls under the age of 16 were rescued from a sex trade and overall 20 victims were identified.

Officials say there are still additional arrests that will come out of this investigation.
