— A Fayetteville teacher who police say inappropriately touched an elementary school student during class surrendered to authorities Monday, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.

Andrew Moore, of 5845 Century Oaks Drive, was charged with multiple counts of taking indecent liberties with a child and taking indecent liberties with a student in connection with alleged acts that took place between February and March at T.C. Berien Elementary School.

Police said Moore, 33, targeted a 10-year-old student and that witnesses reported the acts to school administrators.

Moore was being held at the Cumberland County jail under a $67,500 secured bond. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
