Police began investigating 61-year-old Kenneth Prince after a man came forward claiming Prince had sexually abused him as a child. The statute of limitations had run out in that case, but it gave police enough information to conduct a search of Prince's home.
Neighbors couldn't believe it when they saw police pull up to Kenneth Prince's home last week.
"I took these guys out for a walk and there were a couple undercover cars," explained Brittnie Bravo.
What police walked away with were computers, and on those computers were reportedly pictures of young boys.
South Ogden Police Chief Darin Parke told ABC 4 Utah, "We've identified five photographs involving children in a sexually explicit nature."
Police believe there may be more.
"We believe there are considerably more victims out there in the community based on Mr. Prince's positions that he held in the past,” said Chief Parke.
Prince was a teacher at South Ogden Junior High School from 1979 to 2009. He was a science teacher and a Boy Scout leader.
"He was actually my husband's Jr. High teacher,” said Bravo.
But Bravo’s husband never had any idea something like was going on. "He said he was a good teacher. I think it surprises everyone,” said Bravo. "It's disheartening to see especially when someone who has been involved with the community and kids. You always hope those people have good intentions but again you never know."
Police say it was Prince's community involvement that may have put him in touch with his alleged victims, and they fear his victims could span decades.
Chief Parke told ABC 4 Utah, "These crimes would date back 10, 15, 20 years and that's where our concern is that his behavior has been going on for considerable amount of time and there's a lot of people out there we need to speak with."
