On August 13th, 2021 Detectives from this agency were briefed by members of the New Canaan Police Department Detective Bureau in regards to an investigation they were conducting. The suspect in the New Canaan investigation, identified as Quinten Yonkers, was suspected of (and subsequently arrested for) possessing child pornography.


During the course of the investigation, Detectives from New Canaan became aware of the possibility that Yonkers had been in contact with minor children residing in Darien. Forensic analysis of electronic devices revealed evidence to support this. This information was turned over to Detectives from the Darien Police for further investigation. Through investigatory means, interviews, and analysis of the evidence gleaned from Yonkers’ devices, it was determined that Yonkers had been in contact with minors who reside in Darien for an extended period of time. Further investigation revealed evidence that Yonkers had made inappropriate and unlawful contact with, and had taken and video/images of, the aforementioned minors.


Based on their investigation, on August 24th, 2021 Darien detectives applied for, and were granted, an arrest warrant for Yonkers. He turned himself into this agency on the same day at 1800hrs. He was processed for the below charges and held on a $250,000 court set bond. He was presented in Stamford court on August 25th.


The investigation remains active, therefore no further information will be provided at this time.
