BEAVERTON, Ore. -- A former Beaverton teacher convicted of federal child pornography charges was arrested Monday after being on the run since January, according to a newspaper report.

The Oregonian reported Tuesday that 37-year-old Logan Storm was arrested in Mexico and was expected to return to the United States by Wednesday.

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.

At a January 29 hearing, a judge ordered that Storm be monitored electronically instead of being held until his April sentencing. The next day his monitoring bracelet was found at a Troutdale park.

"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 after the bracelet was located.

Storm was also charged Monday with two counts of first-degree sex abuse for an incident involving two minor victims in July 2007.

Storm had been a teacher at Stoller Middle School before resigning in 2011. He was arrested later that year after returning to Portland on a flight from Amsterdam.

Marshals said the individuals involved in assisting Storm, once identified, will be targeted for prosecution.
