EAGLE RIVER, WI (WTAQ) - A former school custodian in far northern Wisconsin is facing dozens of child pornography charges.

61-year-old Richard Buell of Phelps was arrested Monday in Vilas County.

Authorities say he could face 78 possible counts of child porn possession.

Officials said Buell worked in the Phelps School District until February, the same month after another staffer reported that somebody was gaining access to child porn on school computers.

District officials say an investigation continues.
