CHIANG MAI – American James Craig Neumann, 67, a former teacher has been arrested in Mae Tang district on Tuesday afternoon on child pornography charges with police investigating allegations he molested young boys.

Mr. Neumann, was taken into custody at his home in tambon Khulek Tuesday by officers from the Department of Special Investigation and representatives from the US embassy’s Homeland Security investigative team.

Police said the former English-language teacher was enticing young boys in his neighborhood to come over to play at his house.
