Culbreath was arrested Thursday by detectives from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, according to the Fontana Police Department.

Detectives searched his home in the 15000 block of Grand Avenue in Lake Elsinore and found the child pornography on electronic storage devices, police said.

Authorities later discovered he was a part-time teacher.

Culbreath taught art of animation to ninth- to 12th-grade students for the last two years at the Rancho Santa Margarita school, said Ryan Burris, spokesman for Capistrano Unified School District. After his arrest, Culbreath was placed on leave.

"As always, we will work with Fontana Police Department through their investigation and we appreciate their efforts in keeping our community safe," Burris said.
