Parents are being advised to warn their children about online predators after a Terrebonne man was arrested Tuesday for preying on a minor. The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Child Sexual Exploitation Unit (CSEU), Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry OPP, along with OPP Digital Forensics investigators arrested 55-year old Thomas Tammler after an online undercover operation. He was charged with luring a child and obtaining sexual services from a person under 18 years. The OPP has seen an increase in online offences by people intent on the sexual exploitation of children. As a result, members of OPP CSEU are actively conducting proactive online luring investigations to aggressively target these offenders.         Parents are reminded to take a proactive approach to help protect their children from online sexual exploitation by speaking with their children regarding Internet safety.
