Connecticut man busted for sending obscene photos to young girls in Ohio

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, OH (WOIO) -

A Connecticut man has some explaining to do to Madison Police.

Cops arrested 19-year-old Thomas Fogell, Jr.  He was found inside the high school looking for young girls he had friended on the Internet.

He reportedly sent lewd pictures to the girls -- who were 9th graders. 

Police say Fogell traveled from Connecticut then showed up at the home of one of the 15-year-olds.

"He knocked on the door and tried to talk to the 15-year-old daughter -- the daughter had befriended him online," said Sgt. Ralph Caswell.

Police say Fogell admitted the whole thing when he was arrested.

He is charged with 2-counts of sending obscene photos to minors and trespassing.  He'll be in court on Monday.
