CHELSEA, Vt.—Vermont police say images on a portable computer drive led to child pornography charges against a teacher at the Randolph Technical Career Center.

The Barre Montpelier Times Argus says 58-year-old William T. Zucca of Rochester pleaded not guilty Wednesday in court in Chelsea to a charge of possession of child pornography.

Police say they began their investigation after Zucca allegedly gave a flash drive to a student on Monday that had on it what investigators feel were images of child pornography.

A school staff member then gave the drive to police.

A subsequent search of Zucca's home found what police allege to be numerous photos and videos of people of "questionable age" engaging in sexual acts.

Zucca had no previous criminal record
