Ex-TSA worker indicted on 20 counts of possessing child pornography
BRENTWOOD – A Manchester man who was an officer with the Transportation Security Administration has been indicted on 20 charges related to possessing child pornography.
Miguel Quinones, 38, was indicted by a Rockingham County grand jury on 10 counts of possession of child sexual abuse images and 10 counts of attempted possession of child sexual abuse images.
Quinones worked as a security officer with the TSA at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport when he came under the scrutiny of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force on Jan. 2. He no longer works for the federal agency.
Police said that a search of Quinones’ laptop computer and three USB drives yielded roughly 1,000 images of child pornography.
Indictments say that the images depict adult men engaging in sexual acts with female children, and that Quinones was in possession of all the images on Jan. 2.
Each of the 20 indictments is punishable by up to 7 ½ to 15 years in state prison, and a $4,000 fine, according to prosecutors.
Quinones will be arraigned on the new round of charges in Rockingham County Superior Court on Sept. 26. He is currently free on bail.
Police say that Quinones turned over a laptop and three USB drives kept in his personal locker at the airport once he learned he was being investigated.
Londonderry detectives applied for a search warrant to seize the computer and other hardware.
ICAC investigators conducted the forensic search of Quinones’ computer and USB drives.
Londonderry police learned on May 23 that the laptop had scores of images and a video of what looked like a child engaging in sexual acts.
Quinones turned himself in to be charged after being notified by police that there was a warrant issued for his arrest. He was initially charged with 10 felony counts of possessing child sexual abuse images. A grand jury returned the additional charges earlier this month.
