MUNCIE, Ind.– Police arrested a  Ball State University math instructor Friday for possession of child pornography.

Brian K. Siebenaler was immediately barred from campus after using a university computer on May 7, Ball State University officials said.

He was arrested Friday after a joint investigation with Ball State police and the Indiana State Police Cyber Crime Unit. The investigation began after a campus computer accessed a site with suspicious content.

Siebenaler has worked at the university since 1992. He was not currently teaching any classes.

Last month, Ball State University maintenance supervisor Randal Schmidt was arrested for possession of child pornography in a separate investigation.
