A man from Newark, New York, has been arrested after allegedly soliciting explicit photos from a Loudoun juvenile over the Internet, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.
Matthew Holland, 27, reportedly met the victim over Snapchat earlier this year, using a fake user profile to portray himself as a juvenile and exchange photos with the victim.
Officials said Holland later coerced the victim into sharing more explicit photos via the app, threatening to post her images if she refused to send more.
The victim's family contacted the LCSO, and after an investigation by the LCSO Special Victims Unit, Holland was taken into custody at his New York home with the assistance of the Newark Police Department.
Holland was charged with production of child pornography and use of a communication system to solicit a minor.
The suspect was transported Tuesday to the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, where authorities say he is being held without bond.
