OKLAHOMA CITY - A middle school band director has been arrested for having and distributing child pornography Wednesday. 

The OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children Unit arrested 38-year-old Eric W. Mowery, a band director at Hefner Middle School. 

Authorities said they caught him when he sent child porn to an undercover Guthrie officer. 

Police searched Mowery's home and seized computer-related items as evidence. 

They said, at this point in the investigation, there is no indication the child porn involves local children. 

Mowery was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on six counts of Possession of Child Pornography, one count of Distribution of Child Pornography, and one count of Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
