Teacher charged with sex crimes

A Fairfax County schoolteacher was charged on Friday with sex crimes involving a teen after he attempted to flee the country, authorities said.

Matthew Snell, 31, of Maryland, was taken into custody at El Paso International Airport after an investigation, Fairfax police said. Snell was working as a teacher focused on students with learning disabilities at Thoreau Middle School in Vienna.

Fairfax police said they began investigating Snell on Thursday after parents found inappropriate text messages from Snell to a teen and reported them to the school. Police declined to say whether the victim was a student at Thoreau.

Police said Snell became aware of the investigation and left the area as arrest warrants were being authorized. He was tracked to El Paso, where he was taken into custody.
