A Montgomery County elementary school teacher was charged Thursday in Baltimore County for possession of child pornography, police said.

Lawrence Joynes, 54, of Dundalk, teaches music at New Hampshire Estates Elementary school in Silver Spring, according to the school's website.

Montgomery police will be investigating whether Joynes committed any offenses in that county.

A spokesman from the school system did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday morning.

Joynes, of the 1900 block of Ormand Road, is being held at Baltimore County Detention Center on $1 million bail.

He did not appear to have an attorney Friday, according to court records.
