Federal agents have searched the home of a teacher at The Bush School after he was arrested by Canadian authorities on charges of voyeurism, possession of child pornography and accessing child pornography.
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from the Department of Homeland Security said they obtained a warrant to search the home of Jason Paur, 43, a West Seattle coach and substitute teacher at the private Madison Park school, where he has worked for the past 10 years, said ICE spokesman Andrew Munoz.
Munoz said the case was being investigated by Homeland Security’s Child Exploitation Investigations Group. He released no other details, nor did he say what the agents were looking for.
Paur and 11 students on the school cross-country ski team had gone to the Silver Star Resort in Vernon, B.C., this past week as part of a school trip. He was arrested Tuesday after a female student found a video camera belonging to Paur in her room.
The head of The Bush School, Frank Magusin, sent a letter home to parents, explaining what happened and saying that Paur admitted he placed the camera in the room.
Paur is being held in British Columbia.
