The Huntsville Police Department is investigating two separate cases of sex-related offenses they say involve students.
According to records obtained by KBTX, the Huntsville Police Department responded to a call of Distribution of Child Pornography at Huntsville High School on Wednesday, November 7.
A shift report on Friday said a student was arrested on a charge of Unlawful Promotion of Intimate Visual Material and then released to a guardian.
At the same time on Wednesday morning, records show Huntsville police also responded to a call of Indecency with a Child at Mance Park Middle School on 8th Street.
In that case, a student was charged with Indecency with a Child and was released to a guardian, according to the shift report by HPD.
A spokesman for the Huntsville Police Department on Friday said these are separate incidents being investigated and said additional information would have to come from the school district.
A spokeswoman for Huntsville ISD released the following statement on Friday afternoon:
"Two Huntsville ISD students were arrested on Thursday, November 7, 2019, for unrelated incidents.
