A custodian in the Schoharie Central School District is facing child pornography charges. James Lethco, 50, of Middleburgh was arrested after a search of his home on Wednesday, investigators said, which came after a tip.

No local victims have been identified, police said.

He was released from custody and is due back in court on May 9.

Anyone with information on Lethco is asked to call state police at (518) 583-7000 or email
