    A Snapchat group with photos of nude Fairfax County high school students is under investigation by county police. 

    The account with photos of teen girls was reported to police earlier this month by a student who said he was a member of it. He said another student was posting photos of girls and asking for more. 

    At least three other suspects had access to the account, and at least one victim has been identified, police said. 

    It wasn't clear how people with access to the account got the photos. 

    A message was posted to the account asking for photos of students from Lake Braddock High School, Woodson High School, Robinson High School, West Springfield High School and South County High School, police said.

    Upon investigation, Fairfax County police were able to identify the owner of the Snapchat account. The student’s name was not released. 

    Police tell News4 that multiple students have turned over their cellphones and been questioned, but so far no charges have been filed.

    Fairfax County Public Schools is aware of the investigation. A representative called it a police matter and declined to comment. 

    Child porn charges carry a minimum five-year sentence in Virginia, but most cases have ended with defendants pleading to lesser charges.
