School district officials said Guzzi has been suspended from his position as a 5th grade teacher at John H. Winslow Elementary School without pay.

Investigators seized two laptops, a mini computer, a desktop computer, two iPads and two cellphones, as well as three external hard drives, while executing a search warrant of the home, according to a state justice official.

Gucci was held in the Salem County jail. Bail was set at $50,000.

The arrest was a part of joint investigation by the Division of Criminal Justice, and U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement Homeland Security Investigations.
