Chula Vista Elementary Teacher Arrested For Child Pornography

A South Bay elementary school teacher was on leave from his job today and facing criminal charges for allegedly possessing child pornography and luring young boys into exposing themselves to him online, authorities reported.

John Raymond Kinloch, 41, was arrested Friday after agents with the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at his home, according to police. He was released on bail that evening, a jail clerk said.

Authorities began looking into the online activities of Kinloch, a first-grade teacher at Wolf Canyon Elementary in Chula Vista, based on tips received by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, SDPD Lt. Anastasia Smith said.

The investigation allegedly showed that Kinloch, while posing as a young girl on a website called "MeetMe,'' had persuaded boys to disrobe during live one-to-one webcam interactions, according to Smith.
