MANTECA, Calif. — A former Manteca Unified School District teacher was arrested on Wednesday after being accused of having "inappropriate communication" with a minor, according to the Manteca Police Department's Facebook post.
The Manteca Unified School District called police to report that Jared Rios, a former teacher for Sierra High School, had inappropriate communications with a child.
Police did not describe what led school officials to accuse the teacher of harassing a minor or if they were one of his students.
The school district released a statement saying they are aware of Rio's arrest. They said they fired him shortly after he was put on administrative leave on July 28.
Rios faces charges of annoying/harassing a child through inappropriate communication.
Police don't believe there are more victims related to this case but ask anyone with information to call 209-239-8401.
