Wednesday night arrest of officer, who lives in Kanata, comes after six-month investigation

Ontario Provincial Police have charged one of their own constables with child luring after a six-month investigation.

The alleged incidents happened between September 22, 2012, and December 3, 2012, police said. The girl's family called police to complain in December 2012, and the investigation began.

Const. Michael Janho is facing one count of child luring.

He's been a member of the Ottawa detachment in Kanata for five years, police said.

He was arrested Wednesday night at the Kanata detachment while he was off duty, according to OPP spokeswoman Sgt. Kristine Rae.

The alleged luring happened "via telecommunications," Rae said, adding that it wasn't over the internet. Police can't get any more specific, Rae said.

Janho has been suspended from duty with pay pending the outcome of the criminal charge in court.

His next court appearance is scheduled for July 9.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call OPP at 1-888-310-1122.
