A school trustee, teacher, and firefighter are among seven facing charges after the Creep Catchers-like operation by Vancouver police.
Kevin Johnston, 50, was caught sending dick pics to a “Kelowna Creep Hunter” he thought was a 14-year-old girl.
“Somebody is going to jail today whether it's this fucking goof or me,” Ryan Laforge said in one of the livestreamed incidents.
"We fucking tackled him and zap strapped him and called the police.”
The so-called vigilante pedophile hunter has also been previously charged with drug trafficking.
On Facebook, the man calls himself “Monsignor Aloysius Berchmans” and purports to work at the “Vatican-in-Exile.”
It was like a pro wrestling event for pedophile hunting.
But Toronto’s famed vigilante pedophile hunter denies the accusation.
“Once a criminal, always a criminal” said Ryan Laforge.
Is this the beginning of the end for vigilante pedophile hunting?
The plaintiff alleges that the actions of the president of the Surrey Creep Catcher chapter resulted in him being “subjected to ridicule, hatred and contempt.”
Police have confirmed it was arson but say they don’t have any suspects right now.
