BATTLEBORO, N.C. (WNCN) - A student at Coker-Wimberly Elementary School reported inappropriate touching by a teacher to their parents that led to an arrest, the Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office said Monday afternoon.

The sheriff’s office said its detective division began investigating Zachary Warren Lamm, 31, immediately after being notified.

After a nine-day investigation, Lamm was taken into custody from his home in Spring Lake and served for indecent liberties with a child.

The Edgecombe County Public School System said while the sheriff’s office was investigating, it too was also investigating Lamm. However, it is not known at this time if its investigation began before the sheriff’s office became involved.

Lamm is currently in the Edgecombe County Detention Center under a $100,000 bond.
