FITCHBURG (CBS) – A Fitchburg priest is being held of $500,000 cash bail after appearing in court Monday on child porn and larceny charges.

Thirty-five-year-old Father Lowe Dongor was removed from public ministry in July after he was accused of having explicit images of preteen girls on his computer.

Dongor fled to the Philippines but was extradited back to the United States and re-arrested earlier this month.

Investigators also say Dongor was stealing money from St. Joseph Parish.

Dongor is due back in court on January 3.
