BUCKSPORT, Maine — Maine police say they are investigating alleged sex crimes at a high school in Bucksport.

Police Chief Sean Geagan says the school department told police of allegations involving a former employee of the district and high school students. Superintendent Jim Boothby tells WABI-TV that the former employee is a person of interest in the investigation. Further information was not released.

Boothby says there is nothing more important to the school district than protecting children and maintaining appropriate boundaries.
