Police report that additional information was received by members of the Major Crime Unit, with assistance from Durham Regional Police, which has investigators seeking the assistance of the public in locating Wells, who is known to frequent the Toronto, North York and Oshawa areas.
At present, he is wanted on a warrant for human trafficking, material benefit from sexual services younger than 18, procuring a person younger than 18, making child pornography, distributing child pornography, advertising sexual services, sexual exploitation, uttering threats and breach of recognizance.
