“Sheriff’s Office announces child pornography arrest”
On May 9, 2022, the Carroll County Advocacy and Investigations Center as part of the FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force executed a federal search and seizure warrant in the 10 block of Courtland Street in Taneytown in regard to a child pornography investigation. Between April 2021 and October 2021, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received Cybertipline Reports that a subject, later identified as Evan Thomas Harris Frock, 32, of Taneytown had distributed files of child pornography through the social media app, Snapchat.
Investigation revealed that Frock used the Snapchat usernames of volleygirlhan, volleygirl1025, laxguy2323, and pictures1025 to send, receive, and solicit explicit photographs and videos of underage females. Furthermore, Frock was found representing himself as a high school aged male to facilitate the exchange of these explicit photographs and videos. Detectives have verified that Frock is employed as a long-term substitute and head Varsity Volleyball Coach at Westminster High School in Carroll County and may be or have been associated with other schools and athletic businesses in the Baltimore region. Investigators are working with school officials and the Carroll County Board of Education to identify additional student victims who may have had inappropriate contact with Frock.
It is believed that Frock has contacted over 1,000 Snapchat users. If you believe that you or your child was a victim of Frock, please contact the FBI Tip Line at 410-265-8080 or Carroll County Advocacy and Investigations Center at 410-386-3640.
Frock has been arrested and transported to Carroll County Central Booking where he will have an initial hearing before a Court Commissioner. He is charged with 4 counts of Inducing a Minor to Produce Child Pornography, 4 counts of Distribution of Child Pornography, 2 counts of Knowingly Soliciting Child Pornography, and 8 counts of Possession of Child Pornography. All subjects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
