FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Fairfield police say a Rocky Hill man set up an extortion scheme with a phony talent agency to solicit revealing photos, money and sex from nearly 40 women seeking modeling jobs.

An arrest warrant accuses Anand Amin of telling women that unless they paid him and agreed to sexual favors, he would make public nude or semi-nude photos they submitted with applications for the non-existent modeling jobs.

Police said Friday the 24-year-old Amin succeeded in duping at least two women into sending nude or semi-nude photos of themselves by posing as a female agent for the fictitious agency.

Amin was held in lieu of $100,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Jan. 30 in state Superior Court in Bridgeport. It was not known if he's represented by a lawyer.

    The boatswain's pipe aboard the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Eagle rendered honors, Friday, not for Fox 5 but for some more dignified individual who'd just climbed aboard one of the very few active square riggers still in U.S. government service. Riveted together in Hamburg, Germany, for the German Navy, the Eagle earned its American citizenship when the United States seized it after World War II.
