ARLINGTON -- A former Arlington schools security guard and karate teacher was arrested in Oklahoma for multiple counts of sexual abuse of a child and distribution of child pornography, and now authorities are asking anyone with information that could help identify victims to come forward with information.

Robert Wayne Farrill, 51, worked as a security guard in Arlington ISD from Aug. 1985 to Aug. 1986, and lived in the Arlington area from July 1990 to November 1991. Investigators are working to identify three victims who could be from the area.

In September, agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation's Internet crimes against children unit arrested Farrill at his Okmulgee, Okla. home. While searching Farrill's home, investigators discovered hundreds of images of child pornography on his computer, and videos of nine boys.

So far, investigators have identified six of the victims.

If anyone has information concerning Farrill or information that could help identify the remaining victims, please contact the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
