February 8, 2019

BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) — A suburban Omaha middle school teacher has been arrested after police say hundreds of images of suspected child pornography were found on a computer he had taken to a shop for repairs.

Police say 46-year-old Logan-Fontenelle Middle School science teacher Roger Jaeger was taken into custody Friday morning on suspicion of possessing child pornography. Police say the shop where Jaeger’s computer was being repaired called police to investigate.

Police seized the computer Friday morning and arrested Jeager at the school without incident. Omaha television station KETV reports that Jaeger has been placed on administrative leave.

Jaeger has been booked into the Sarpy county Jail. His case does not yet appear in online court records, and he could not be reached for comment.
