ORANGE COUNTY (WABC) - An NYPD auxiliary officer was arrested in Orange County Thursday for allegedly having a huge collection of child pornography.
Police say Daniel Sayers, who is listed on the auxiliary website as a captain, had hundreds of photos of boys under the age of 16 engaging in sexual acts. The pictures were discovered in two raids.
Sayers had also received an award sponsored by President Barack Obama for his services.
Sayers was a 20-year resident of Blooming Grove and was in the process of moving to a rental property in Greenwood Lake. Police say his landlord saw some of his moving boxes and noticed disturbing photos before contacting authorities.
Sayers has been suspended by the NYPD and is being held at the Orange County Jail.
