TROUTDALE – A former Beaverton teacher convicted of federal child pornography possession charges was missing after his court-ordered monitoring bracelet was found at a Troutdale park Wednesday.
The suspect, 37-year-old Logan Storm, was indicted for encouraging child sexual abuse in August of 2010, after images of child pornography were discovered on his computer, according to police.
"We found numerous still images of children, some even at toddler age but most prepubescent girls being sexually abused by adult men. We believe this subject will re offend and we want to get him into custody as soon as possible," U.S. Attorney Amanda Marshall said Tuesday.
He was due at a court sentencing hearing Wednesday morning, The Oregonian first reported. A judge ordered Storm to be monitored electronically, rather than held in jail until an April sentencing date.
And that has many concerned parents living in the Troutdale area up in arms.
"The guy should have never been released in the first place. If he's offending like that he should be locked up completely," said Leigha Scholz, mother to a 12 year old daughter.
The bracelet was found at Lewis and Clark Park near the Sandy River Wednesday. Authorities were alerted around 8 a.m., The Oregonian said.
He was described as white, 6-foot 2, weighing 200 lbs. with brown hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo on his back, U.S. Marshals said.
He was thought to be driving a green Ford F-150 pickup truck with Oregon license plate 726-CKA.
Storm was a teacher at Stoller Middle School before resigning in 2011. He was arrested after returning to Portland on a flight from Amsterdam in 2011.
