Fairfax man faces five counts of child pornography

News release from the Fairfax County Police Department

An 18-year-old is facing charges of storing illicit images of teenage girls on a file sharing account. Ergi Masati, of Fairfax, was arrested Oct. 23, 2018 for five counts of possession of child pornography.

On Sept. 10, 2018, a school resource officer at Westfield High School received an anonymous letter, which provided information on two DropBox accounts with numerous nude images. After a lengthy investigation by the Fairfax County Police Department’s Child Exploitation Unit, information on Masati’s arrest is being released because all the victims have been positively identified and notified by detectives.

Masati graduated from Fairfax High School in 2017. The victims attended several Fairfax County high schools from 2015 to 2017 and have all now graduated.

Masati was released on $5,000 bond on Oct. 23, 2018.
