A suspended RCMP officer is facing charges in Arviat, Nunavut.

Officers from the Arviat RCMP detachment responded to the report of a disturbance at a home early Sunday morning.

Const. Ian Kaulback has been charged with one count each of careless storage of a firearm, breach of recognizance, and mischief under $5,000. He is to appear in court in Arviat on Aug. 18.

Kaulback, 27, was working as an officer in Newfoundland and Labrador.

But he is on leave from the RCMP after he was charged in Hopedale, N.L., with luring a child under the age of 16 over the Internet.  Kaulback is now living in Arviat

Under bail conditions for the Labrador charge, he cannot use the internet or any mobile device except to communicate with his lawyer. He can be in the "presence" of children in public spaces, but may not communicate with them.

His preliminary inquiry on the luring charge is scheduled for Nov. 19 in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, N.L.
