A Federal Way, Washington, man was arrested this morning for possession of child pornography.
Christopher Scott Newcombe, 35, has worked as a music teacher in a variety of public and charter schools in the Puget Sound region. Currently, he is an elementary music teacher in the Renton School District.
In November 2018, federal agents were alerted to the transmitting of sexually explicit images of young boys involving an internet protocol address ultimately traced to Newcombe.
Law enforcement obtained a search warrant for Newcombe’s digital devices. The warrant was executed this morning, and Newcombe was charged with possession of images of child pornography.
Newcombe’s current teaching position is at Renton’s Cascade Elementary School, but his social media profiles indicate prior teaching positions at schools in Tacoma, Federal Way, and Bainbridge Island.
