    A Fairfax County teacher has been arrested at his school and charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

    Robert C. Fenn, 26, of Herndon, Va., has been suspended from his job as a first-year special education teacher at Poplar Tree Elementary School in Chantilly. He taught kindergarten through third grade, NBC4's Chris Gordon reports.

    Fenn is accused of possessing images on his home computer. No Poplar Tree students were shown in the pictures, said a police spokesperson, and school computers were not used.

    Fenn was arrested after a week-long joint investigation by the Fairfax County Police Department and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security agents.

    Authorities searched Fenn's home Tuesday and retrieved computers and other materials.

    Homeland Security was involved because online images can be transmitted internationally.
