A former teacher and a pastor have been arrested on unrelated child pornography charges.

Bruce Fehr, 54, of Savannah, and Zachary Giebner, 33, of Savannah were arrested following an investigation that began two months ago. During the investigation, investigators with the Southeast Georgia Child Exploitation Task Force discovered that both Fehr and Giebner were downloading child pornography. Giebner was formerly a teacher at Bryan County High School, according to the Effingham Sheriff's Office.

Fehr is the reverend at St. Francis Episcopal Church on Wilmington Island, said Joe Heath, with the Effingham County Sheriff's Office and the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Search warrants were executed this morning at each of their Wilmington Island homes where computers were seized and the men arrested. Both men are currently in the Effingham County jail where they face charges for Sexual Exploitation of Children.

The FBI-led Southeast Georgia Child Exploitation Task Force operates in conjunction with State and local law enforcement, to locate and recover juveniles that have been sexually exploited through prostitution and to identify and arrest those who would sexually exploit juveniles by other means. The task force is comprised of agents and officers from the FBI, GBI, Effingham County Sheriff’s Office, Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, and the Pooler Police Department.
