In December 2023, the Greenwich Police Department Special Victims Section Detectives were alerted to a Greenwich IP Address downloading child sexual abuse material.

The information led to a thorough investigation, eventually resulting in the issuance of a search warrant.

On Thursday, June 19, 2024, Detectives from the Special Victims Section executed a Search and Seizure Warrant at a residence in Byram.
