Zachary Reeder, 30, of Orange, was arrested on suspicion of lewd conduct with a child, according to the Irvine Police Department. (Irvine Police Department)

Investigators say a male teacher has been posing as a Southern California girl on Facebook to lure boys into online relationships.

The Orange County Register reports that Irvine police arrested 30-year-old Zachary Reeder on suspicion of lewd conduct with a child, possession and distribution of child pornography, and child annoyance.

Police say Reeder convinced the boys to send him sexually explicit photographs of themselves by posing as a young woman.

It's not believed Reeder had any in-person contact with the boys

Investigators are trying to determine if Reeder used his job as a history teacher at Servite High School in Anaheim to target victims.

Servite is a Catholic all-boys school.

Reeder previously taught history at a Christian high school in San Juan Capistrano and coached basketball at an Irvine high school for four seasons.
