A Montgomery County man has been charged with manufacturing child porn.
According to search warrants, Brian Pettenger started talking to a teenager in New Jersey through a messaging app called KIK Messenger.
Pettenger reportedly posed as a teenager to entice the girl to send nude pictures. Once she did, he threatened to expose those pictures on social media if she didn't send more.
The charges against Pettenger were filed in New Jersey so he will be extradited in the coming months.
Investigators said this is an “open case” and more charges could be filed in Virginia.
