A man was arrested and charged with possession of child porn related charges after he was caught in possession of child porn, according to a statement released by police in Virginia.

Investigators arrested the technology education teacher last week on charges of child pornography, according to a press release from the Sheriff's Office of Orange County.

Robert Jeffrey Kobman, 32, of Locust Grove, is being held without bond in the Regional Center of Virginia jail, according to the press release.

The detectives seized the personal computer and electronic equipment of Kobman, several weeks ago. Kobman was placed on administrative leave from the school system after the county learned of the investigation.

"Any change in the position of Kobman will depend on the Sheriff's office and our own internal investigation," Yvonne Dawson, director of human resources for Public Schools of Orange County, said in a statement.

Investigators said there is no evidence that any of the children in the pornographic images were local children from school.
