He was arrested on Wednesday – and then released on bond.

Fairfax County police say they began investigating Gregory when a juvenile victim revealed having illegal sexual contact with Gregory to their parents.

Police Gregory used handles like "jimmy organist," "John mane 2345," and "Suzy Weber" to entice his would-be victims.

They say he also lied about his age to his targets.

Police are asking anyone who might have had contact with Gregory - or who might recognize one of his monikers - to call (703) 246-7800.
