Four Medicine Hat men have been charged with a variety of online child sexual exploitation offences.

ALERT’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit made the arrests last week.

Investigators say there is no definitive link between the suspects other than the nature of offences allegedly committed.

A total of 43 computers and devices were seized and will be subject to a full forensic look.

27 year old Thomas Bindr, 78 year old Blaine Vadnais, 43 year old Jeremy Unruh, and 34 year old Owen Michael Monteith face charges.

Police say none of the accused were thought to work in professions of trust and/or authority.
