Riverview man charged with luring a child

A 72-year-old Riverview, N.B., man is facing a charge of luring a child.

The man appeared in Moncton provincial court on Thursday and is scheduled to reappear at a later date.

New Brunswick RCMP's internet child exploitation unit began investigating in January with an investigator posing online as a child.

Officers arrested the man on June 9 and seized several electronic devices from a home, according to a news release.

The RCMP's digital forensic services unit and members from the Codiac Regional RCMP assisted with the investigation.
