ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies want your help tracking down information about a teacher they say was paying kids to take inappropriate pictures of themselves. Jon Cruz, a social studies teacher at a Bronx high school, was arrested last week accused of producing child porn and soliciting boys in New Mexico.
Deputies say he contacted victims through the app “kik” and offered to pay teens hundreds of dollars for pictures of their body parts. Detectives say there are five victims in New Mexico and they’re working to find out if there are more.
The FBI has set up a hotline and email. To contact them, call 212-384-2166 or email FBI-BHS@ic.fbi.gov.
