Former Alberta Pastor Charged with Teenage Intercourse Crimes – CityNews Edmonton
EDMONTON (NEWS 1130) – A former pastor from small town Alberta is charged with sex crimes against teenagers, and Mounties says western Canada could potentially have more victims of incidents.
Brad Dahr, 53, is accused of sexual interference, voyeurism, easing a child, owning and distributing child pornography, and providing sexually explicit material to a child.
The charges stem from incidents between January 1, 2018 and October 31, 2010 that were reported to the RCMP in the city of Vegreville, Alberta. All of the incidents involve teenage girls who know Dahr.
According to the RCMP, Dahr was arrested Thursday after his home in Edmonton was searched. The police confiscated electronic devices, documents and clothing as evidence.
Mounties says the defendant is widely known in the Lower Mainland as “Pastor Brad”. It is also known as such in Edmonton, Vegreville, Drumheller, Beiseker, and Beauvallon, Alberta; and also in Yellowknife, NWT.
According to a LinkedIn profile, Dahr left the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Alberta after 14 years there.
Police shared a photo of Dahr described as 6’0 “tall and 260 lbs. He is bald, has light bangs and blue eyes.
