TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Two school bus drivers are among 14 men arrested in New Jersey in a child pornography sweep.

Authorities say Andrew Schreiner, 28, of Williamstown, and Armando Nortez, 28, of Egg Harbor Township, drove students to school in Mays Landing.

Federal and state authorities say the men and other suspects used a file-sharing network to download and distribute child pornography on the Internet.

Authorities also accused Michael Van Culin, 30, of Salem County, of hacking into a 16-year-old Canadian girl’s email account and coercing her to strip on a webcam.

He’s charged under the state’s stricter child pornography law that carries up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman says the arrests are part of “Operation Predator Alert,” which resulted in 14 prior arrests in October.
