24-year-old Nicholas Adair of Lake Hiawatha, Morris County, was arrested on March 30th.

Authorities say,

In January 2022, detectives from the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, along with members of the Division of Criminal Justice, Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and Homeland Security Investigations-Newark Division began investigating Adair for possession of child sexual abuse material after receiving referrals from other law enforcement agencies. During the investigation, detectives discovered Adair was a gymnastics coach for juvenile females and was capturing inappropriate pictures during practices and competitions.

Last week, detectives executed a search warrant at Adair’s home. There, they seized his cell phone, "which contained multiple files of child sexual abuse material."

Adair was charged with manufacturing and possession of child sexual abuse material and is currently being held in the Morris County Jail pending trial.

Police say this investigation remains open and anyone who may have been a victim is asked to e-mail hitechinformation@njsp.org. Anonymous information may be submitted.

The public is reminded that charges are accusations and all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
