Putnam County Sheriff Kevin J. McConville reports the arrest of Robert L. Langley III, of Mahopac, NY, on multiple counts of possessing a sexual performance by a child.
In March 2022, Investigators assigned to the Sheriff's Office Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) received information from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that images and videos of child sexual abuse material were being shared online from a residence in the Town of Carmel. BCI Investigators executed a search warrant at the residence on May 25, 2022, assisted by PCSO electronic storage detection K9 Hannah. Investigators began a digital forensics examination of the electronic devices seized and were able to recover evidence and identify a suspect.
The 36-year-old male resident of the Town of Carmel was charged with (4) four counts of Possessing a Sexual Performance by a Child, a class E felony. He was arraigned before the Honorable Daniel Miller and released on his own recognizance pending a future appearance in the Town of Carmel Justice Court.
BCI Investigators worked collaboratively on this investigation with the Putnam County District Attorney's Office, FBI Safe Streets Task Force, and New York State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
