A Garrison man was arrested on Oct. 5 on charges of “using a computer to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity.”
Dylan Quinn, 25, turned himself in to police to answer a warrant. Detectives say Quinn contacted a minor in Stratford, Connecticut, and attempted to arrange a meeting for sex.
According to the Connecticut Post, police said Quinn contacted a 16-year-old boy through a social networking site and, after sending him explicit photos, arranged to meet the boy at his home. The boy’s father saw the messages and called police before any meeting took place, police said.
Police in Stratford asked New York authorities for assistance in locating Quinn, according to the Post. They said Quinn admitted contacting a number of teenagers through the Internet, the youngest being 14. Police said Quinn said he denied ever meeting with teenagers for sex.
He was released on a $50,000 bond. His next court date is Oct. 13.
