"He is currently a government consultant with eHealth Ontario," OPP Sgt. Peter Leon said. "He was arrested at Queen's Park, at his workplace."
Leon said the investigation began in June when a bureaucrat approached police complaining someone had illegally gathered private photos and was threatening to distribute the photos to the bureaucrat's friends and family if certain demands weren't met.
Leon said police did not want to release any potentially identifying information about the bureaucrat, or about the photographs.
He cautioned the public that regardless of the medium used to communicate, the law will always be enforced.
"I think it's important for the public to realize, a lot of people feel when it comes to social media and different things like that people feel certain things just don't apply," Leon said.
"Well, the Criminal Code does in fact apply."
Robert E. Guillemette, 54, was charged with two counts of criminal harassment and three counts of personation with intent on Monday.
He is to appear in Toronto court on Nov. 6.
