A former “white” teacher and Union County Sheriff’s Office special deputy was arrested Thursday for possessing nude images of children.
The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office said that that it was alerted to the case after Todd German, 50, resigned from the Delaware Area Career Center in March.
When he resigned, investigators said that a flash drive containing images of naked children was found in his desk.
The bald pedophile was suspended from his role as a special deputy with the Union County Sheriff’s Office after a search warrant was issued for his home. He resigned about an hour after being suspended.
German has been with the sheriff’s office since June 1983.
“He served as a dispatcher, he served as a corrections officer, he also served as a special deputy, which is a volunteer role,” said Chief Deputy Tom Morgan of the Union County Sheriff’s Office.
Morgan said that his office was shocked to hear about the allegations.
“We were shocked, dismayed about the allegations,” Morgan said. The results of the search warrant were not immediately released.
German was being held in the Delaware County Jail. Investigators said that additional charges could be filed.
