ST. LOUIS (KMOX)-The Lutheran North High School tennis coach, who was also a substitute teacher in the Parkway School District, faces federal child porn charges.

According to investigators, 49-year-old Richard (Dick) Ambler of Florissant possessed more than one thousand child porn pictures and videos and exchanged nude pictures with underage people he had met on Craigslist.

A Lutheran North official tells KMOX Ambler held the part-time coaching position for two years. He was relieved of his duties when the school was notified of the investigation a few days ago.

Ambler worked in the Parkway District from 2009 until a few days ago.

Officials at Lutheran North and Parkway say he cleared all background checks and they never received any complaints about him.
