Child Pornography Arrest
In November 2017 the Special Victims Unit (SVU) was contacted by the Department of Homeland Security regarding a referral from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). The RCMP advised that a complaint had been made to their agency alleging inappropriate internet communication between a thirteen-year-old Canadian female and an adult male who they determined to have resided in Norwalk, CT.
Norwalk Detective Jim Thompson then assumed the investigation. On January 23, 2018, a search and seizure warrant was executed on the residence at 11 Suncrest Road in Norwalk. A number of internet-capable devices were seized from the residence during that operation.
An analysis of those devices by Norwalk Sergeant Nate Paulino confirmed that the communication with the thirteen-year-old female from Canada had occurred, and also revealed additional internet communications with a twelve-year-old female from Florida. As a result, two arrest warrants were obtained for Eddie Zapata. Zapata turned himself into Norwalk Police on April 25, 2018.
