Former Brookfield officer charged in case linked to student photos

A former Brookfield police officer assigned to the High School has been arrested in a case involving the distribution of nude photographs of two former students.  Connecticut Insider reports that Steven Rountos was the school resource officer and charged Friday with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.  According to court documents, the 2017 and 2019 graduates became aware in 2021 that nude photos taken while they were still in high school were circulating on social media and reported it to Brookfield police, but felt their complaint was not taken seriously.  One former student went to a Danbury police and was put in touch with a Special Agent from Homeland Security.  Court documents say the photos were obtained when a Snapchat account was “hacked and illegally accessed." Lawyers for the former students said the agent told them the photos had been found on a cell phone and flash drive in Rountos’ possession.  The 32-year old Southbury man was placed on administrative leave and later resigned.  He is due in court on the 18th.
