 EUGENE, Ore. -- Police searched the home of 42-year-old twin brothers Jacky and Jody Allard last Wednesday (Mar. 5) as a part of a child pornography investigation, according to documents from the Department of Justice.

Officials said they haven’t made any arrests following he investigation. 

Search warrant documents state there were pictures of sexually engaged underage boys posted to Instagram and Tumblr through an IP address listed at the Allard home. Department of Justice officials couldn’t comment on their ongoing investigation.

Jody Allard, who up until recently was a teacher at Shasta Middle School, shares the home with his twin brother Jacky.

“Teacher Jody Allard was placed on administrative leave by the district on the morning of Tuesday, March 4th,” said Pat McGillivray of the Bethel School District.

Willamette Valley Babe Ruth president Todd Wagner said both men were coaches with their baseball organization until they resigned via email on March 4. Wagner added that as coaches, it is possible the men had time alone with the boys.

The Babe Ruth organization requires regular background checks of everyone involved, and Wagner said they take the safety of their players very seriously.

Until last week, Jacky and Jody were also involved with the Willamette Valley Sports Academy.

One woman, who didn't want to be identified, told our news reporters her son played on the Allard’s winter league team. She said both she and her son were devastated by the possible charges.

Our news team reached out to the Allards for comment, however we haven’t heard back. 

The search warrant paperwork states that officers seized 26 items, ranging from computers to flash drives.
