Upon receipt of information in September 2010, the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit initiated a criminal investigation into possible possession and distribution of child pornography from the Campus of the University of Connecticut.
On Tuesday, November 16, 2010, the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit and the Mansfield Resident Trooper, assisted by UConn Police, executed a search and seizure warrant at the dormitory room of accused Gregory McKee, located at 402A Rosebrooks Hall on the University of Connecticut campus.
During the execution of the search warrant, items of evidence were seized by Troopers. This evidence was transported to the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes and Electronic Evidence Laboratory for further investigative examination.
The analysis of the evidence seized and investigative information uncovered by investigators led Troopers to submit an arrest warrant application to Superior Court for the arrest of the accused in this case.
An arrest warrant was issued by the court G.A. 19 Rockville, for the arrest of Gregory Joseph McKee.
Accused McKee turned himself in to State Police Barracks, Troop C, in Tolland, on 12/08/2010. The accused was processed and held on $75,000 court set bond.
The accused will appear at G.A. 19 today, Dec. 8.
The investigation is continuing and additional arrests may be forthcoming.
