MILTON, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire law enforcement officials say they are investigating offenses against two children in the care a school bus driver arrested for possession of child pornography.

Authorities say 45-year-old John Allen Wright of Milton is a fugitive from justice from the state of Maine, where he is wanted on two counts of gross sexual assault on a child.

Police say Wright worked for a company that transports special needs children to schools and day care centers, and that he transported children in New Hampshire’s Strafford and Rockingham counties and in Kittery, Maine, since 2008.

The Dover, N.H., police say they are investigating whether Wright may have assaulted two local children.

He is being held on $50,000 cash bail. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer representing him.
