BANGOR — Authorities say a Greek Orthodox priest from Bangor is facing child pornography charges.

Police on Monday arrested 52-year-old Adam Metropoulos, a priest at St. George Greek Orthodox Church, on charges of violation of privacy and possession of sexually explicit material.

Bangor police say they started investigating on Saturday when a woman complained that she thought she had been photographed or video recorded without her permission or knowledge.

District Attorney Chris Almy confirmed Metropoulos is charged with possessing child pornography.

Metropoulos is being held at the Penobscot County Jail on $10,000 bail and could not be reached for comment. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.

He has been a priest since 2001 and used to teach high school chemistry.
