An advertisement posted on Kijiiji has led to the arrest of a Thunder Bay man on sex-related charges.

Thunder Bay police report detectives began an investigation on Tuesday after an ad was posted by a person saying he was a photographer looking for young male models, aged 6 to 13 years old.

Undercover officers arranged to meet a suspect who was unaware he was communicating with police.

A 27-year-old man was arrested Thursday afternoon at an undisclosed location.

Matthew William Lovering is charged with invitation to sexual touching, luring a child, and breach of probation.

He remains in custody in the Thunder Bay district jail pending a court appearance next week.
