Authorities identified the two former Killeen ISD employees as Aaron Justin Daub and Terrance Hockless during a news conference Tuesday morning.

The sting was conducted at a Harker Heights hotel.

The one-day operation on Nov. 8 involved Bell and Travis county deputies and Harker Heights police.

The 10 men were all released after posting bond.

Daub and Hockless were teachers at the time they were arrested, Bell County Sheriff Eddy Lange said Tuesday.

The two men resigned last week "in lieu of termination before we could fire them as a result of their arrests," Killeen ISD spokesman Terry Abbott said in a statement late Tuesday morning.

Daub, who taught at the KISD Career Center, had been with the district since January 2001, Abbott said.

Hockless was a first-year music teacher at Bellaire Elementary School, he said.
