OLD LYCOMING TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Robert Morrison, 73, is charged with making and having obscene materials after police say they discovered he had altered pornographic photos using pictures of the faces of minors.
Old Lycoming Township police say Morrison's wife came to police last week, saying she discovered photo collages inside their home in Cogan Station about a month ago.
Court papers show Morrison allegedly cut the heads off pictures of underage girls and placed them over the faces of females engaged in sex acts.
Police say Morrison is a music teacher and say he's worked for both the Montoursville and Williamsport Area School Districts.
He also teaches music lessons at K & S Music in South Williamsport.
“Very surprised because he never came off to me as doing something like that,” said John Hearton of Hughesville, a frequent customer at K & S Music.
He's known Morrison for 30 years and was stunned to hear what he's being accused of doing.
“Very nice, he's the first drummer I ever met around here,” said Hearton. “Yeah, excellent music teacher.”
Police say Morrison's wife believes the girls in the photos are past and present students of her husband.
Police arrested Morrison outside the music store last night.
Police say Morrison refused to identify the females in the photos, only asking to speak to an attorney.
“I would have never suspected it in a billion years,” said Hearton.
Police are now trying to identify the three to five girls in those photos.
One of Morrison's neighbors says this news is troubling.
“Luckily our kids are grown and gone but there's a lot of young children up here,” said Bob Hitzeman.
Morrison is locked up at the Lycoming County Prison on $75,000 bail.
