Frock worked as a long-term substitute teacher and head varsity volleyball coach at Westminster High School. It’s believed he may have been associated with other schools and athletic businesses in the Baltimore region, according to the sheriff’s office. Investigators are working with school officials and the Carroll County Board of Education to identify additional victims.

The sheriff’s office said that between April 2021 and October 2021, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received Cybertipline Reports that Frock had distributed files of child pornography through Snapchat.

Detectives learned that he used the usernames of volleygirlhan, volleygirl1025, laxguy2323, and pictures1025 to send, receive and solicit explicit photographs and videos of underage girls. Frock allegedly portrayed himself as being in high school to help facilitate the exchange of the photos, the sheriff’s office said. It’s believed that he contacted over 1,000 Snapchat users.

Law enforcement encouraged those who may have been a victim or know anything additional to contact the FBI Tip Line at 410-265-8080 or Carroll County Advocacy and Investigations Center at 410-386-3640.
