WOODLAND, Wash. -- Robert Leonard worked as a janitor for the Vancouver School District and in Seattle for almost 30 years, which has authorities concerned because they allege he sent explicit text messages and emails to a Pennsylvania 13-year-old.
Woodland police picked Leonard up after getting tipped off by the Pennsylvania Highway Patrol. During interviews with investigators in Washington, Leonard reportedly admitted to a physical relationship with two local boys.
The relations started when the boys were 13-years-old, but Leonard would not tell detectives who the boys are.
The Vancouver school district released a statement that in part reads, "Leonard worked on a custodial support team at various district locations. The school district will cooperate fully with law enforcement if requested."
Authorities are hoping the public cooperates as well. Anyone with information about Robert Leonard was urged to call Woodland police.
