Former TSA worker indicted on child porn charges

BRENTWOOD — A former top officer with the U.S. Transportation Security Administration has been indicted on 20 child pornography charges after items were seized from his locker at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

Miguel Quinones, 38, of 67 Whittemore Ave. in Manchester was recently indicted by a grand jury in Rockingham County Superior Court on 10 counts of possession of child pornography and 10 counts of attempted possession of child pornography.

A video and more than 1,000 images of child pornography were found on Quinones’ personal laptop computer and three thumb drives stored in his airport locker, Londonderry police Lt. Timothy Jones said.

Quinones was arrested in June following an investigation that lasted more than a year, according to Sgt. Thomas Grella, commander of the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Quinones was a lead transportation security officer who had worked for the federal agency since August 2002, TSA spokeswoman Ann Davis said. Quinones was suspended without pay in January, she said.

The charges against Quinones are felonies each punishable by seven and a half to 15 years in prison.
