Irvine police have arrested a high school baseball coach suspected of posing as a female on Facebook and convincing underage boys to send him sexual pictures of themselves.
Zachary Reeder, 30, of Orange set up a fake profile using a photo of a blonde female, police said, and used the social networking site to form relationships with his victims.
Reeder was arrested Saturday on suspicion of lewd conduct with a child, possession and distribution of child pornography, and child annoyance.
After befriending the boys — including one whom is 14 years old — Reeder would push the relationship to be more and more inappropriate and convince them to send him explicit photos, police said.
He contacted multiple victims through the last two years, police said, but added that there is no indication he had any physical contact with them.
