HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

A former assistant principal in Hanover is behind bars on two counts of child pornography, according to sheriffs.

Michael C. Teegarden was arrested Thursday morning after investigators executed a search warrant executed at his home in the 10000 block of Morning Dew Lane.

Hanover school leaders have confirmed that Teegarden worked in Hanover from July of 1998 to June of 2000 and was an assistant principal for Lee Davis High School.

Investigators say they were acting on a tip with members of the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that a computer in the home was being used for trading digital child pornography online.

Henrico investigators worked with the Linn County Sheriff's Office in Oregon to charge Teegarden with two felony counts of possession of child pornography.  

Forensic detectives in Oregon said Teegarden sent child pornography images to a computer in Linn County, located south of Portland.

Detectives said Teegarden sent the images within the past few months, but could not elaborate on the number of images allegedly sent.

Teegarden is being held without bond at Pamunkey Regional Jail.

According to his Twitter feed, Teegarden served as Virginia Chair of Martin O'Malley's presidential campaign.
