Ex-Mass priest charged with child porn in custody

Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER (AP) — A Roman Catholic priest who was indicted in Massachusetts on child pornography charges is in custody in Los Angeles.

A spokesman for the Worcester District Attorney's office says Lowe Dongor, who is also accused of stealing from his former parish in Fitchburg, is being held as a fugitive and could be returned to Massachusetts shortly.

A grand jury handed up indictments in March charging the Rev. Lowe Dongor with possession of child pornography and larceny of more than $250.

The DA's spokesman, Tim Connolly, said Dongor was recently brought to Los Angeles from his native Philippines, where authorities believed he had fled. Connolly had no other details on the arrest but said Dongor had agreed to be returned to Massachusetts.

The Diocese of Worcester suspended Dongor from ministry last year.
