A Chambersburg teacher, charged with the sexual exploitation of children, is out of prison.
Police say he created child porn using pictures of his students.
The Chambersburg School District says it is cooperating in the investigation.
Jeffrey Schmutzler has been released and is in his parents custody. On Friday, the family said they are shocked by the charges Schmutzler faces and now that he's posted bail, he has been advised to seek mental health treatment.
Anthony Sherman is Schmutzler's neighbor. He says early Thursday morning, he saw police in the neighborhood. "Went out the back deck and saw something, i don't know if they were policemen or what and a couple guys with flashlights and saw the cars and black SUV."
Man of Schmutzler's neighbors say they saw police surround his home. They say he kept to himself.
Now released in his parents custody, the Chambersburg teacher faces charges of creating child porn.
In a court hearing on Thursday, CBS 21 news learned he allegedly photoshopped pictures of his students on naked people and investigators believe he wrote fantasy letters to himself from a child's perspective about what they'd do with him.
Early Thursday morning, officers removed a computer and other belongings from his home.
Schmutzler has taught Spanish at the Chambersburg High School for years. His parents told CBS 21 News they haven't heard from this district about the matter. But the Superintendent released this statement: "Student safety is and will always be our primary concern. It is critical that students continue to feel school is a safe place full of adults they can trust. Administrators, counselors and additional staff were present in the high school today to reassure students and employees and to address any and all concerns over this matter."
It went on to say if students have further concerns to talk the high school principal.
In a Harrisburg Federal courtroom on Thursday, Schmutzler waived a preliminary hearing and a judge said upon being released he should seek mental health treatment. Last night, his mother told CBS 21 they would.
As part of his release he is not allowed to have contact with people under 18, have access to a computer or be anywhere near an ice cream parlor his family owns.
If he's found guilty, he could face 5-10 years behind bars and $250,000 in fines.
As the investigation continues, officials with the U.S. Postal Inspection ask people who may have information about him to contact them at 717-257-5581.
