CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – Police believe there could be more victims in the case of a former Chesterfield high school contractor accused of soliciting minors.

Chesterfield Police said 37-year-old Antwon L. Chavis, of the 5800 block of Trinity Place in Centreville, was arrested on Jan. 17 in Fairfax County.

Officers said their investigation found Chavis swapped “inappropriate images with multiple juvenile male students” at Clover Hill High School.

Police were alerted on July 16 after a student told the school’s principal about receiving “inappropriate” texts.

Chavis was charged with five counts of use of a communication device to solicit a minor.

“Police believe there may be additional victims,” officials said in a news release Thursday.

Anyone who may have been a victim is urged to call the Chesterfield County Police Department at 804-748-1251 or Crime Solvers at 804-748-0660 or through the P3 app.
