FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – A Greene County man was extradited back to the Miami Valley from Maryland this week for sex crimes involving children.

In late 2018, the Fairborn Police Department began an investigation into possible sex offenses against young juveniles by 39-year-old Jonathon Varhola.

As a result, Varhola was indicted for five counts of rape and five counts of gross sexual imposition.

He had relocated to Maryland, and with the help of the U.S. Marshals Service (SOFAST), he was arrested at his residence on April 31, 2019. He was extradited to Ohio on May 1, 2019, and was incarcerated in the Greene County Jail.

Authorities continue to investigate Varhola and hope that any additional victims who may be out there will come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call Fairborn Police at 937-754-3000 or the Tip Line at 937-754-3018.
