A first-grade teacher in Chula Vista has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography and attempting to lure young boys to send him nude pictures, the San Diego Police Department said Tuesday.

John Kinloch, 41, a teacher at Wolf Canyon Elementary School, pretended to be a 13-year-old girl on a youth-oriented website in an effort to get boys to send him naked pictures of themselves, police said.


Kinloch was immediately placed on leave by the school district.

He was arrested Sunday after a search warrant was served on his home by the multi-agency San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
