A Virginia track coach was charged with possession and production of child pornography, Fairfax County police say.

Ted Nasol, 26, of Aldie, was arrested Wednesday on three felony counts of soliciting a minor, reproduction of child pornography and production of child pornography, police said Thursday.

Nasol was a coach at the Dulles South Track Club and has worked with “many juveniles,” police said. 

It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Nasol is accused of trying to extort a minor into sending him illicit images in January by threatening to share with her family other images he had.

Police said Nasol illegally gained access to the minor’s Snapchat account in October 2020 by pretending to be a support specialist. He transferred pictures of the victim to his phone, police say.

“The juvenile fell for a ruse text message from what they believed was customer service from a social media company,” Stephen Wallace of the Major Crimes Bureau said.

Detectives were notified of the attempted extortion by a parent. Officials searched Nasol’s home this month and found multiple electronic devices containing images of “child sexual abuse material" from several other minors.

They’re worried there are more victims who either haven't yet come forward or might not even know they were victimized.

“If he's done this to one person, I mean, how many others did he try to and how many did he succeed?” Wallace said.

Nasol was held without bond. Fairfax County detectives are discussing additional charges with Loudoun County authorities.

Officials encourage anyone with information about Nasol, including others who may have been contacted by him, to call them at 703-246-7800, option 3.
