Fairfield Public Schools employee arrested on child pornography charges
Police say a school employee has been arrested on child pornography charges in Fairfield.
Police arrested Peter Wheeler Jr. yesterday.
They say they were notified by the Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit of a tip they received. Investigators identified Wheeler as a suspect. Authorities say Wheeler was an employee of the Fairfield Public Schools system. The administration was notified of the incident earlier this month.
As a result, he was told he couldn't have any further interactions with students or staff. He also wasn't allowed in any school buildings.
Police obtained a warrant to search Wheeler's home on Jan. 11 and say they seized several devices and found evidence to arrest him.
