A 21 year-old Gibsons man is facing charges related to supplying drugs and alcohol to girls between 13 and 16 and participating in sexual activity with several of them.
Steven Alan Ronald Phare (pictured here), who also goes by Steve-O, is alleged to have initiated contact with the girls through text messages and social media.
The victims live in communities across the Sunshine Coast, from Gibsons to Madeira Park and there are as many as a dozen of them.
Sunshine Coast RCMP Constable Harrison Mohr says there may be additional girls out there who were targeted or manipulated by the suspect and police would like to hear from them…..
He says the girls may not feel like victims, however it s important for them to know that any sexual contact in these circumstances is illegal, and speaking with police can help to keep other girls safe.
