Westover E.S. neighbor arraigned on child porn charges (1/11/13)

STAMFORD - A Stamford man who lives near an elementary school was arraigned today on child pornography charges.

Police arrested Roland Roqueta, 69, yesterday. Authorities say they found hundreds of images of child pornography at his home.

Roqueta lives near Westover Elementary School and was apparently using binoculars to watch the students.

Principal Kathleen Wunder says the school kept parents informed of the situation by sending out an email blast and letters home with students.

Police don't think Roqueta had any contact with the children. They say he is not on the sex offender registry in Connecticut or any other state.
