PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A man arrested in Mexico who investigators say is the former Beaverton teacher convicted on child pornography charges has been formally deported back to America.

That man, however, claims he is not Logan Storm.

Storm has not officially surfaced since the day he was convicted in a local courtroom on Jan. 29. He was released from custody, pending his sentencing, but disappeared that same day and dumped his ankle monitoring device at a Troutdale park.

Law enforcement representatives told Fox 12 last week Storm was arrested in Mexico.

However, his attorneys said this week they didn't know where Storm was and have been unable to communicate with him.

Thursday, the U.S. Marhsals Oregon Fugitive Task Force confirmed Storm was arrested in Mexico City on March 12. They said he was formally deported from Mexico on Thursday morning and taken into custody by marshals in Houston, TX.

Investigators said Storm has denied his identity, claiming to be someone else.

He has been booked into a Texas jail pending an initial appearance before a U.S. magistrate judge. He will be returned to Oregon at a later date, according to investigators.

At that time a sentencing hearing will be scheduled. Storm also now faces a federal indictment of failing to appear, along with refiled charges of abusing two underage girls at a public swimming pool at the Mt. Scott Community Center in 2007.

Storm is a former teacher at Stoller Middle School in Beaverton.

This is the second time he has fled from authorities. When a search warrant was served at his home in 2010, he left the state, drove to Canada and boarded a plane to London. He spent the next nine months in Europe before he returned to the U.S., and marshals arrested him at the airport.
