Police arrested a teacher with the Cumberland School District on child molestation charges Thursday.

According to Captain Philip Gould, on September 19th, at approximately 5:00 p.m., the Lincoln Police arrested Nicholas Oliveira, 29, of Lincoln, for second degree child molestation. An arrest warrant for Oliveira was obtained by Lincoln Police Detectives following a recent investigation stemming from two separate incidents involving two juvenile females.

The incidents, which were recently brought to the attention of Lincoln Investigators, reportedly occurred within the past two years. Oliveira was arrested following a car stop as he was returning to his home on Cormier Road Lincoln.

Oliveira was transported back to the Lincoln Police Department where he was processed and arraigned on 2 counts of second degree child molestation.

Oliveira was released on $10,000 cash bail and was ordered to have no contact with the victims.
