A Shoals Junction man was arrested Thursday night following reports of sexting that involved a teenager.
Bruce Allen Johnson, 29, of 2601 Sam Hodges Road, Hodges, was charged with criminal solicitation of a minor in connection with the incident.
Ware Shoals police began investigating on April 23 claims the suspect sent sexually inappropriate text messages to a 14-year-old girl earlier this month. According to a Ware Shoals police report, officers found four such messages sent to the victim from the suspect's cellphone. A witness told officers she took the phone from the man, but he had already deleted the messages he'd sent.
