News outlets quoted the Alamance County Sheriff's Office as saying it received a report Wednesday that a teacher at Western Alamance High School was having inappropriate relationships with students.
Special Victims Unit investigators said they discovered messages between 58-year-old Kenneth Ray Lockner and students that were considered to be indecent. The teacher was charged with three felony counts of indecent liberties with a student.
Reports say the case is ongoing and more charges could be filed.
Lockner was arrested and jailed on $100,000 bond. A hearing is set for later Friday.
