PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - State police say they have arrested a Portland High School teacher on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

Forty-four-year-old Gerald White of Freeport was arrested at the school and charged with possessing sexually explicit material of someone under the age of 12. He was taken to the Cumberland County Jail.

White teaches art at the high school. Police say an initial examination of his computer showed dozens of images of child pornography. They say none of the children are believed to be from Maine.

It wasn’t immediately known if White has a lawyer to speak on his behalf.

The story has been corrected to show that police now say White was arrested at the school, not his home.
