A District of Columbia public school teacher was arrested Friday after he was accused of illicit images with students at the school.

John Solano, 29, a science teacher at McKinley Technology High School in Northeast Washington, was arrested and charged with production of child pornography, said D.C. police spokeswoman Gwen Crump.

Police became aware of the allegations Friday, and Solano was escorted off the campus Friday afternoon, Crump said.

Police say that Solano sent explicit photos of himself to male students, and also received explicit photos from male students.

Police are also looking to speak with anyone who may know of any inappropriate incidents involving Solano. Anyone with information is asked to call D.C. police detectives from the Youth Investigations Division at (202) 576-6768.
