New Canaan Police arrested a former New Canaan Nature Center employee on child pornography charges Tuesday evening.

Timothy J. Yancey, 57, of Milford was charged with first-degree possession of child pornography.

The investigation stems from allegations that Yancey had child porn on a Nature Center computer, as was first reported in the New Canaan News.

According to the report, New Canaan Police, with assistance from the Milford Police Department, arrested Yancey on a warrant at his Milford home. Police said they took him into custody without incident.

Search warrants were subsequently executed on Yancey's vehicle and residence.

He is being held at the New Canaan Police Department on a $250,000 bond. Yancey will be arraigned at Norwalk Superior Court today, Wednesday, March 24, at 10 a.m.
