NORWALK - A former New Canaan Nature Center groundskeeper was arraigned Wednesday on child pornography charges.

Police say Timothy Yancey, 58, downloaded more than 50 images of children aged 5 to 11 on his work computer. An arrest warrant claims Yancey's co-worker caught him in the act last April.

The incident prompted an 11-month investigation by the FBI.

Yancey was fired immediately. The center says it is ready to put the incident behind it and move forward.

Yancey faces 5 to 20 years in prison if convicted and would need to register as a sex offender. He is being held on $250,000 bond.
