Canadian soldier in custody after secret recording device found in U.S. home

A Canadian Forces corporal who had been assigned to the Canadian embassy in Washington is facing charges of sexual assault and possession of child pornography after a covert recording device was discovered in the home of another Canadian military member serving in the U.S.


A military police spokesman said Friday the soldier is in custody in Gagetown, NB.

The recording device was discovered in the Washington-area home of a Canadian Forces member in January. That, in turn, led to an investigation that has resulted to numerous charges.

The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service charged Cpl. Colin McGregor on Wednesday. He faces charges of sexual assault, voyeurism, interception, breaking and entering, as well as possession of property obtained by crime, theft, transmission of an intimate image, possession of a device for surreptitious interception, and possession of child pornography.

The charges have not been proven in court.

McGregor is currently working at 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown, NB.

McGregor, who is with the Canadian Army, had been a resource management support clerk with Canadian Defence Liaison Staff in Washington, DC.

After the discovery of the covert recording device, officers with the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, with the assistance of local police, searched McGregor’s home in the U.S. and seized several electronic devices, said Navy Lt. Blake Patterson, a spokesman for Canadian military police. Recordings found on these devices included video of an alleged sexual assault against a member of the Canadian military at Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt, BC in 2011. 

In May 2016 McGregor was selected with other military personnel to represent the Canadian Forces in the U.S. Memorial Day Parade. He also served at least one tour in Afghanistan.

McGregor faces a possible court martial at a date and location still to be determined.

He is currently in custody in Gagetown, Patterson said.

The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service is not providing details about the gender of the alleged victims, other than to say they are adults.

The Canadian Defence Liaison Staff are located at the Canadian Embassy in Washington. Their mission is to promote successful Canada-US defence relations.

On May 10, 2017, the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS) charged a member of the Canadian Armed Forces with sexual assault, voyeurism and related offences under the Criminal Code of Canada.

The charges stem from the discovery in January 2017 of a recording device at the private residence of a Canadian Armed Forces member near Washington, D.C.

The accused, at that time, was a resource management support clerk with Canadian Defence Liaison Staff (Washington). CFNIS investigators, with the assistance of local police, searched the home of the accused and seized several electronic devices. Recordings found on these devices included video of a sexual assault against a Canadian Armed Forces member at Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt in 2011.   

Corporal Colin McGregor, now based at 5th Canadian Division Support Base Gagetown, New Brunswick, faces multiple charges under the Criminal Code of Canada, punishable under section 130 of the National Defence Act. Charges include sexual assault, voyeurism, interception, and breaking and entering, as well as possession of property obtained by crime, theft, transmission of intimate image, possession of a device for surreptitious interception, and possession of child pornography.

The matter is now proceeding in accordance with the military justice system for possible court martial at a date and location still to be determined.

Anyone who has knowledge related to this investigation is asked to contact the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service at: 1-888-812-3647.
