A 39-year-old special physical education instructor, with ties to the Oregon City School District, is in federal custody on an allegation he made child pornography and had detailed notes on how he would drug two children so he could sexually abuse a much younger girl.

James Ian McGlothlin, who lives in Southwest Portland, was arrested Friday evening in the 11800 block of SW Kerr Parkway in Lake Oswego.

Investigators told KOIN 6 News they are seeking the public’s help to identify possible unknown minor victims.
