(Story broke 5/3/2017)

35-year-old Derrick La Marr Jones, of Catonsville, Maryland, was arrested for allegedly trying to lure a 16-year-old girl from Ashburn, Virginia to Baltimore through Instagram, while using the screen name of ‘Toxicnfektion’. He is also said to have sent an Uber to the girl’s home to bring her to Baltimore. Authorities say that this girl may not be his only victim.

Investigators say that Jones has traveled all over the country to various comic conventions, and the like, in order to try to pick up underage girls. He would use the aliases of Kanovski Zan-Lee Vulgen, Kano or Lee, when telling girls at these cons that he was anywhere from his late teens to early 20s. He also claimed to be a cosplayer, a martial artist and a pro-gamer. Jones is said to have attended conventions in Orlando, Albuquerque, Phoenix, Flagstaff, Los Angeles, Sacramento, and Salt Lake City.

Police believe he may have more victims…

Anyone with information regarding the possible identity of the suspect is asked to call Detective J. Suess of the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office at 703-777-0475 or you may submit a tip through the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office app, which can be downloaded on iTunes or Google Play.

There are few things as sad as a middle-aged man trying to act like a young person for any reason. Doing so to try to pick up underage women is even sadder. Not to mention that he bragged about being a martial artist. I bet he even tried to convince them he was an MMA fighter. If he wasn’t so potentially dangerous he’d be almost laughable.
